From the intense luminosity and poignant evocation of traditional stained glass windows to the vivid colours, spectacular forms and mesmerizing surface textures achieved by many contemporary artists, glass is a rewarding medium for both creator and viewer. Currently numbering only twenty one items, the Gallery's glass holdings make up the smallest of the Collections, but range from historically important commemorative windows to contemporary pieces by some of New Zealand's most significant practitioners, who have consistently renegotiated the rules and boundaries of their chosen genre.
