Robert Held

Featured Guest Artisan Robert Held

Robert Held Hot Glass…A term not only used to describe what we make and how we make it, but also our passion for the glass itself. Fire and heat are evident in the colours, the lines and the shapes of our pieces. At Robert Held Art Glass we strive to produce works of art that appeal to the connoisseur in all of us.

Every piece that leaves our studio, whether a one-of-a-kind vase or a beautiful paperweight, receives the same care and attention from our artisans.

For over 25 years Robert Held has lead the Canadian art glass industry, establishing the first college-level art glass program and influencing the art across North America. His pieces are in the collections of royalty and governments and can be part of your home collection.

Using techniques that date back 2000 years, Robert Held Art Glass continues to inspire and amaze, including the Crucible line of collectible vases crafted with dichroic glass and 24-carat-gold leafing. You can visit Robert Held at his studio at 708 East Island Highway in Parksville. www.robertheld.com
