This glass blowing studio has great pieces of glass artworks. There is a wide range of gift options, garden ornaments and at times the opportunity to watch James creating these beautiful pieces of glass.

While staying @ Halls Gap, found out about this Gallery about 16 ks from Halls Gap, in a place just past Pomonal, easy to find, he has a sign out on the road saying if he is open. We were lucky he was opened even on Mother's Day, I bought this amazing bowl , though it was hard to pick between several that I Just loved. Every thing is made on site which is what we like when we are buying something special. Highly recommend you take a short drive close also to Ararat & Stawell.

If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary to do, go and visit James the glass blower.
His work is not only extraordinary but you get to see glass blowing up close and James is always willing to talk you through the process.
Be aware that the studio is not always open so might be a good idea to phone ahead our watch out for his sign on the Ararat side of Pomonal which is always out with either open or closed easily readable.
James seeks some amazing glass products such as vases, large bowls and gorgeous hanging balls. Products chime in many colours, something to suit every one.
Prices are not cheap but do remember that you are purchasing a piece of art handcrafted by a well known Grampians artisan.

this sort of thing has always fascinated me and after arriving at his studio we realised that we own one of his pieces, we had the pleasure of watching them making a large bowl, it was interesting and they were quite willing to chat and explain what they were doing
