A Message from Robert Held:

To my dear and loyal customers,

I'm happy to announce that after closing down the Kitsilano studio and moving to Vancouver Island, I couldn't sit still long enough to enjoy a relaxing retirement, and am at it again. Compelled by my love for blowing glass, I have been slaving away constructing a new studio in Parksville that should be fully up and running by the new year. 

My goal is to focus more on one of a kind pieces and special orders as well as collaborate with local glass artists in the area. Although we are still in the final stages of completing the studio and not yet equipped for production, we have many one of a kind pieces available for sale on the website and ready for order. 

Thank you for your loyalty and your support in this next phase of Robert Held Art Glass. I'm very excited to continue creating beautiful pieces for you. 

Robert Held


Robert Held Art Glass, once Canada’s largest hot glass studio and gallery, has reopened in Parksville, British Columbia. A smaller version of its Kitsilano predecessor, Robert plans to shift away from high volume production to focus more one of a kind art pieces.  

Robert Held’s art glass collections range from classic to contemporary. From vases to bowls to hearts to paperweights, his designs are inspired by the work of famous artists such as Monet, Klimt and Tiffany. Robert’s glasswork has also been chosen for many prestigious awards and collections. His goblets were selected to grace the table of the Governor General and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s collection now houses Robert’s commissioned piece “The Northern Lights” – a stunning glass bowl created with gold & dichroic glass.

Online you can see our latest collections, learn about glass-blowing and hopefully entice yourself to have a signed piece of art delivered to your home.
