The lack of a venue in South Africa where the best of South African art glass could be viewed under one roof prompted Britz to establish the showroom. Nelius also addressed the need for South Africans to be familiarized with international standards of art glass by importing works of renowned glass artists from countries such as Australia, the Netherlands and Britain.
This active artists' space produces work for a colourful showroom featuring handcrafted glasswork for sale. It specializes in kiln-formed art glass. The studio’s larger project designs have included glass windbreaks, abstract screens and crystal-shaped cast glass shards.
As the interest in art glass in South Africa increases, more glass artists are emerging. Now visitors and collectors can find art glass of the highest calibre at the EDGE gallery.
