Have known Neil & Gisela for years. Amazing artists. I have had 4 Windows in my home replaced with their glass art. So beautiful. Unique in every way. Great people. Stop in when visiting Elora. A must see for sure.

There are so many beautiful pieces in this shop I don't think I could pick just one. Lovely wind chimes, framed glass art, Christmas tree decorations, jewellery and more. Very unique and beautiful gift ideas.

You cannot visit this shop without buying a gift....small or large. We purchased a dish from recycled glass as an anniversary gift. The large framed pieces are works of art.
