Although it was a bit out of our price range, it was still a great shop with lovely pieces of art and cool explanations as to how they make each pieces.

The glass blowing workshop was closed when we arrived, so this was just a 10 minute view of their glass artwork for us. The entire thing smelled a bit like a tourist trap. They mainly display a series of very expensive vases, but lighting and...More

We are a small family business of four artists. (mum, dad and two children) and we definitely don' feel that we are a tourist trap. Our glass pieces start selling at $39 and the TV showing our glassblowing video is from 2001 (not 1970)

The gallery is on a country road out of Nelson so you need to drive there. Very professional set up with a great range of fabulous pieces for sale including jewellery.

We stopped on here and really enjoyed watching the glass blowing for about an hour. It's really amazing what they do and how they do it. Totally recommend a visit.

Our visit was extremely enjoyable and fascinating to see how these beautiful pieces of art are made. The two young men making the glass, their music in the background, and their non-verbal signals to each other as they made pieces together was almost like watching...More

There are some beautiful pieces of glass on display, both the buy and as examples of the craft. There is also some interesting information about glass and the process of cooling the glass once it has been blown. Due to the fact that all the...More
