Examples of Chris' work can be viewed, in person, at the gallery he shares with his potter partner, Jane Murray-Smith.

   The Gallery features many kinds of Glass Art: stained glass panels; sand-carved glass panels, fused and slumped glass, glass sculpture, and mixed media glass (incorporating materials such as stone, wood and exposed beach aggregate). You can also visit both the glass and clay studios and view art work in progress.

To find us is easy. We're on Vancouver Island north west of Nanaimo. On Hwy. #19 (Island Hwy.), 3 km past Lantzville, beside Nanoose Bay, just look out for a blue 'A' artisan sign with 'glass art' and 'potter' tabs. Take the next right turn and you are there.
