    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...  more »

  • A fleeting visit whilst in Nelson and if you want to see some of the finest glass work well worth the trip. Unfortunately and not unexpectedly being a public holiday, there was no glass blowing demonstration however it just gives us another excuse to revisit
  • Disappointing coming back to visit after being so impressed previously, 13 years ago. No glass blowing, and no more of the charm. It has become an overpriced gallery... is it because they think they're unique in this part of the world so can rest upon their laurels? Yes, glass is a divine medium but Hoglunds (sorry, no double dot o's on my keyboard) not so much of the Art Glass, is stagnating. After my first visit had started my delicious journey of discovery with Graal, I felt immensely saddened from returning to find there was nothing to ignite someone else.
  • Beautiful glass creations but only worth 5 minutes of stopping over to have a quick browse.
  • Some absolutely gorgeous artworks here, but prepare to pay a lot for them! No doubt the Höglund's are amazing artists, and worth a visit if interested in glass blowing. Amazing if they are there doing a demonstration, but also fine to watch the video from couches and just browse their creations
  • Nice glass art if you can afford it. Small paper weight starts pricing at $60. Amazing vases all the way up to $2860! Staff could be more friendly.
