Glass

I have  been designing and making stained glass art for over 30 years in Austraila and New Zealand.
Come and have your ideas brought to life by commissioning a piece, or choose from the many door and window designs displayed at the gallery in Dargaville.

One of my passions is teaching others to create beautiful stained glass pieces and I run classes on how to work with the glass and create your own works of art.

My work can be found in homes and buildings  throughout  New Zealand, Australia and Europe.

Andrew and Robyn Leary have been making kaleidoscopes for over 30 years.

Our kaleidoscopes include wooden hand-helds, and sideboard pieces, usually with some swamp Kauri.

To achieve good symmetry in the image, we invented a new optic system. It produces kaleidoscopic mandalas, from a wide range of objects, including bubbles, and one that lets the viewer look around the world.
Six different optic systems feature in The Loves of Antheia, which won the 2015 Wharepuke sculpture trail. We have just returned from installing an Antheia kaleidoscope at a school in Singapore.
We use High Vacuum Thin Film Deposition to manufacture our own dichroic glass, and so create a range of unique glass jewelry.

Our new Yurt Gallery is open most days, if the sign is out, or by appointment.
