  • What an opportunity: NZ Glass Art works on view (and to purchase) and often you can view glass being created before your eyes in the blowing pit before operating glass kilns. A one of a kind gallery!  more »
  • We really enjoyed visiting Glassworks. The man working at the time was very informative and it was fascinating to watch him work.  more »
  • Loved watching these people at work, making some amazing creations. Would have been great if someone was giving a bit of a commentary about the processes they were going trhough.  more »
