Available Panels and Portals Summer 2021

Hanscomb Glass Studio in Elora
Many of our panels are designed using Neil’s signature stained glass style. Each panel has striking elements that draw the eye. With large shards of broken glass and glass pebbles as accents, the organically textured glass elegantly surrounds it. On the smaller panels, the frame may be “broken” which further accentuates the organic and fluid look of the panel.

Bamboo Chimes: Behind the Design

Bamboo Chimes: Behind the Design
We have been making kiln worked wind and breeze chimes for many years and wanted to add a flameworked chime to our selection. The design of this chime was inspired by some of our travels to Asia where bamboo is seen everywhere including many areas of calmness and serenity.

River Fun, Unique Artisans and Rich History: Top things to do in Elora and Fergus

Sofie Sharom at Hanscomb Glass Studio in Elora
In a vibrant yellow clapboard century-old building off of Church St E in downtown Elora you'll find a unique working glass studio specializing in all things glass.  Husband and wife team Neil Hanscomb and Gisela Ruehe established Hanscomb Glass in 1983, and while their ornate stained glass pieces are their specialty, visitors to their store can find an array of unique art. Much of the studio creations are made from upcylced and repurposed float glass, diverted from post-consumer sources and then creatively designed into one of kind pieces of art. From stunning glass bowls and decorative wind chimes, to curvy flame blown ornaments and delicate pieces of jewelry, there's a keepsake there with your name on it.
