Gamze was born in 1970 in Ankara, Turkey. Shee graduated from TED Ankara College in 1987 and Bilkent University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Interior Architecture and Environmental Design in 1991.
Her interest in glass and glassblowing led her to discover the Glass Furnace Foundation, which was established in 2002. Gamze’s glass adventure, that started in 2003, was shaped by the numerous glass workshops she attended at the foundation. In 2005, she founded the Camekan Cam İşler brand with Yasemin Sayınsoy whom Gamze had met at a workshop. The love for her art was reinforced through the workshops she received from many artists internationally. This gave Gamze a more global view of design and paved the road to be more creative with intrinsic skills. She had the chance to promote Turkey in international fairs, events and exhibitions. In 2008, she broke new ground with the Glass Furnace Foundation.
Yasemin and Gamze started teaching glassblowing to those who want to blow hot glass, for the first time as Turkish artists called "Meet Glass". In 2010, she helped start the Hot Glass workshop at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University and teach hot glass blowing at the Academy. At the same time, she pursued her MA with her thesis on 'The Place of Glass Blowing in the Glass Art Education', which was completed in 2018.
While Gamze Araz still continues functional and artistic creation and production for the Camekan Glass Art and Design brand, she continues to provide training to many others to meet and be fascinated by hot glass.
