The New Zealand Society of Artists in Glass was formed in 1980 and celebrates the diversity of glass art techniques from blowing, casting, slumping, fusing, and flame working, to pâte de verre and stained glass. Its membership includes artists, teaching institutions, suppliers, galleries, collectors and an executive membership including several other glass societies worldwide; as well as affiliation with GAS (Glass Art Society of America), and AUSGLASS (the Australian Glass Society). There are reciprocal arrangements in place with the Australian, Canadian, British and Danish glass groups to encourage the growth of strong international relations and understanding of local and international developments.
The annual members' exhibition displays work that has been created during the preceding 12 months. The exhibition acts as a showcase of the current trends, ideas and innovations in New Zealand glass art. Around 40 works will be presented in the exhibition, including examples from a range of different glass art techniques.
