FOR YOUR ONGOING PATRONAGE

Australian hot glass artist, Gerry Reilly, creates handmade blown art glass from his renowned Melting Pot Glass Studio in Margaret River Wine Region. 
After 23 years as a public demonstration studio and gallery, Gerry and his partner Margot Edwards have closed their main street gallery and built a new home studio. They are developing a new approach to their hot glass practice, with an emphasis on open studio seasons, commission appointments, experiential hot glass workshops incl small group bookings, and evening soiree events.
 
Gerry Reilly specialises in art glass for interior designs at home and work including lighting, individual and professional commissions, 
exhibition and architectural installation artworks, corporate and government presentations, awards, trophies and protocol gifts, wedding, anniversary, birthday and workplace presents and gift vouchers.
His online studio glass gallery shows a vast array of his designs and his facebook page http://facebook.com/meltingpotglass and instagram MeltingPotGlassStudio show new designs on a regular basis

Available by appointment, Gerry Reilly is still very much working with hot glass and customising art glass commissions for your home, gift or presentation piece. You can phone or email from wherever you are, and work with Gerry and Margot through online photos and design concept discussions. You can give us a call if you're in Margaret River. And if you are looking for a specific piece with little time to spare, or have seen a design you love in our online studio glass gallery, don't hesitate to contact us for "off the shelf" purchases.

And for glassmaking experience workshop bookings and enquiries, phone Margot on 0420940123 or email meltingpot@westnet.com.au.

  • Margaret River Drug Aware Pro 2014 Surf Trophies by Gerry Reilly
    28/05/2014 at 4:42pm
    Gerry has been creating magnificent trophies for the Pro for 20 years.
    In 2014, the event became a 5 star international WSP event.
    In consultation with ASP, Gerry created a new design to reflect Margie's extraordinary break that is Surfers Point. After moulding and shaping the glass waves at the furnace, Gerry then hand carved the jarrah bases to represent the renowned reef at the Break.
    The trophies were a triumph and we look forward to next year.
    The magnificent photos were taken by our friend Michael Woolley, international fashion photographer who happened to be visiting from London - he treats the glass like the most sensual Italian fabric in the wind.....
