BLOWN AWAY BY HÖGLUNDS...
Höglund Glassblowing Studio & Gallery
- Truly an experience to remember!
Höglund Glassblowing Studio & Gallery is one of Nelson's iconic visitor attractions. On the outskirts of Richmond, in the midst of the Appleby countryside, world-renowned glass artists Ola and Marie Höglund welcome visitors to discover the magic of glassmaking.
The large glass gallery displays a wide range of unique art glass vases, bowls, platters, paperweights and goblets - complemented by a selection of beautiful, glass jewellery made exclusively by hand. A glassblowing video is showing on the screen in the museum area.
The glass museum also holds permanent, educational and historical displays about glass and what it is made of, how it is made, the tools and other special equipment used, recipes for the mix of crystal and coloured glass and information about different glassblowing techniques. Also on display are Höglund Art Glass America’s Cup Collections and Höglund Art Glass Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Collection.
Only 20 minutes drive from our Nelson central accommodation. Open every day 10am - 5pm (closed 1st January, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Good Friday)
