Gareth Donnelly first discovered his love for working with metals as an apprentice with the Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, England. He developed his passion for engineering art whilst living and working in Germany, France, Wales and during many years in New Zealand. An inveterate “Ferrophile”, Gareth collects pipe and fittings from a wide range of sources. He looks for quality and age. In the field of Tap Lamps, old is good. It is not uncommon for fittings and pipe in a Gareth Donnelly Tap Lamp to be over 80 years old.
Several of Gareth's wonderful Tap Lamps will be on display at Euchronia, including a brand new piece completed just for the event.
