Production & Commissions
Canberra Glassworks’ commissioning service supports the production of Australian bespoke glass artwork, light fixtures, tableware or corporate gifts designed specifically for a particular project. We are able to realise your design with all the exciting properties of glass that allows less constraints in the design phase. Through the flexibility and adaptability of the medium we can develop solutions that have three dimensional and spatial qualities unlike any other material.
Commissions are undertaken in consultation with architects or designers from the earliest design stages of a project. While some clients prefer us to create the design, many prefer to be heavily involved in the process – the choice is yours. Either way we work closely with you to refine the commission and provide you with a detailed quote and time line for delivery. With access to a world class facility and exceptional local artists specialising in glass blowing, kiln forming, casting and cold working, we can provide you with a unique design and fabrication opportunity.
