WOULD YOU LIKE A UNIQUE PIECE OF GLASS? WHY NOT COME AND TAKE A LOOK IN OUR GALLERY?
Unique Glass Art by The Glass Shack
Every piece of glass art made by The Glass Shack is unique...it is handmade from design to completion by Caroline. You may see something similar, especially if a design is popular, but every piece is individually handmade in my small workshop using only hand tools and finished in the kiln.
Please take a look at the gallery here, with a brief description and price indication. This is just a very small selection of art pieces available to buy. ..and, to be honest, any of them might have been sold by now! If you have something particular in mind, please get in touch...something similar may already be in the Downderry gallery or it could be commissioned.
Please note...this is not an online shop. All of these pieces are made for sale in the Downderry gallery. If you are interested in a particular piece, please contact me for details.
Some pieces can be shipped...many others can't!
The perfect option if you can't decide exactly what to buy.
Vouchers are available for workshops or for purchases made from the Gallery or can be used as part payment towards either.
They cannot be bought online so if you would like to purchase a voucher please contact me directly, using the 'GET IN TOUCH' button, for more information.
