  • Closing in Melbourne

    August 4th, 2014

    To our many loyal clients:

    After almost 40 years of innovative, contemporary glass design and manufacturing in Melbourne, Les (and Wendy) are moving to live and work on Waiheke Island, Auckland, New Zealand at the end of November.

    Les will continue to make glass from his home studio and continue to supply to overseas clients.

    In the meantime, if you wish to purchase any of the artworks at our East Kew Gallery, we would be very happy to provide our services to advise, and install if required. Prices are negotiable on some artworks.

    From 9th October for one month, we will be hosting a closing exhibition of our latest designs, which are based on travels in the outback and remote areas of Australia. The abstract, highly textured panels are very vibrant in colour.

    To ensure you gain a personal invitation, please contact us with your current email address.


    St. Catherine’s of Sienna, West Melton

    February 24th, 2014

    We recently completed an ecclesiastical window commission at the new St. Catherine’s of Sienna Catholic Church. ┬áThe contemporary interpretation of the historic ‘Arc’ style architecture resulted in the interesting configuration. The lighting conditions of an interior window were a challenge!

    Epworth Eastern Sacred Space Window

    January 29th, 2013

    The beautiful art glass window at the Sacred Space on level four of the Epworth Eastern hospital was specially designed in collaboration with the donor and hospital staff, and unveiled in May 2011.

    The window was donated to the hospital by Mr Frank Gilbert, whose wife had been cared for at the Epworth Eastern and died there in April 2010. He wanted the window to be a lasting tribute to his wife Marjorie, that would be of benefit to others in times of crisis.

    The Sacred Space represents the spiritual heart of the hospital, especially the values of community, respect and compassion, because it is open to all people.

    The window was dedicated by the Reverend Professor Norman Young, a member of the Epworth Board of Management and a Uniting Church minister, who helped develop the Sacred Space when the hospital first opened. He noted that every person will appreciate different about the window each time they look at it.
