One of New Zealand's best known and longest standing glass galleries is Hoglund Art Glass. From their iconic collectible family of penguins to bold platters and vases, their work creates a kaleidoscope of bright saturated colors and smooth curves. Hoglund Art Glass is now sold internationally, and the glass gallery and museum is open year-round. If the glassblowers are working during your visit you can watch them at their craft. They don't do this every day, so call ahead
to confirm they are.
