Robert Held Art Glass, once Canada's largest hot glass studio and gallery, has reopened in Parksville, British Columbia. A smaller version of its Kitsilano predecessor, Robert plans to shift away from high volume production to focus more one of a kind art pieces.
Robert Held's art glass collections range from classic to contemporary. From vases to bowls to hearts to paperweights, his designs are inspired by the work of famous artists such as Monet, Klimt and Tiffany. Robert's glasswork has also been chosen for many prestigious awards and collections. His goblets were selected to grace the table of the Governor General and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's collection now houses Robert's commissioned piece "The Northern Lights" - a stunning glass bowl created with gold & dichroic glass.
