Originally the home of Sunbeam Glass Studio, a collection of local artists and creatives, Ponsonby’s Glassworks is a celebration of rich, artistic history. Renowned glass artist Garry Nash worked from the studio for three decades, producing his pieces in the four large kilns originally on the property.
Tributes to his work and those of the many creatives who have worked in the space can be seen through a series of exhibits often held in the space. The newly developed courtyard, designed by Jared Lockhart, brings shape and versatility to the site. The extensive use of brick and hand-cast concrete seating is a nod to the site and its rich creative history.
Glassworks comfortably seats 80, with a holding capacity of 150 guests and is available for public and private hire for events and exhibitions.
