At Glass Point you can commission your own custom glass art, buy pre-made glassware or learn more about the artistry of glass making by attending one of our workshops or masterclasses. Our aim is to bring glass art closer to people. This is why our open concept allows visitors to not only purchase locally made unique artworks and design items, but to see the artists in action as well. It also makes it possible for Glass Point to function as a co-working space for glass artists from all over the world. If you are an artist interested in collaborating with us, we would love to hear from you.
