About me


I have three main facets to my glass business:

  • Jackie Hancock – Aroha glass; creates Art pieces and sculpture often inspired by the ocean, with some quirky, geeky bits thrown in too!


  • Aroha glass; creates functional pieces of Fused glass work – bowls, vases, coasters, memorial pieces and jewellery.


  • Memorial pieces – you can commission me to create a one off piece of jewellery or art containing the ashes of a loved one, pet or human – treated with respect and care at all times and following tikanga practices.


NB: I also run small group or individual workshops or lessons for anyone who may be interested in learning more about glass fusing or who would love to have a go themselves – these are all arranged privately, please contact me for more details!



Aroha Fused glass studio is based in Pegasus, North Canterbury, New Zealand
Opening times vary, please ring to make an appointment or check opening times.



I have just received my order of licorice coasters. They are beautiful and I am thrilled with them. Fantastic communication and speed of delivery!!


Jackie is a very talented artist who is passionate about her craft, her home studio display is awesome, communication on item purchased was quick and friendly, definitely recommend


Jackie did an incredible job of taking my written thoughts on the piece I wanted & turning them into reality. The photos don’t actually show just how beautiful this is in real life. Don’t hesitate to get your own custom piece created. You’ll love yours as much as I love mine
