Work is available from a broad range of artists some of whom have created their work within our facility while other well respected and emerging artists are represented from across the country.
Give yourself a little time to really explore the area as there are many hidden treasures which can easily be missed upon first inspection and keep in mind that some pieces may be available in different styles and colors but only one example is displayed within the shop.
With glass art it is critical to view items in a variety of contexts and to examine the manner by which light interacts with them; feel free to ask about seeing the pieces in a different light to ensure you’re making the best choice.
If you are looking for a gift and it all seems a little bit hard remember you can always pick up a gift voucher and let the recipient decide for themselves.
Features of the retail are:
- Production glass from some of Australia’s leading glass artists
- Books about glass
- Glass and glass-inspired objects for children
- Glass objects made on the premises
- Glassmaking materials and equipment (on request)
