Welcome to Perth Art Glass

Perth Art Glass specialises in the production of Art Glass for both commercial & domestic buildings. With over 25 years experience under the leadership of Ian Dixon, Perth Art Glass has the capacity and most importantly the expertise to handle large scale projects as well as small.

With one of the largest glass kilns in Australia for the production of Custom Textured Glass (Slumped glass), Perth Art Glass enables the client to design functional pieces of toughened Architectural Art Glass such as screening, partitions & frameless shower screens.  All of our textured glasses are one off productions with no two panels identical keeping your project unique. Perth Art Glass also specialises in Coloured Fused Art Glass for beautiful wall features with colour that will never fade or wear away, a truly spectacular permanent colour feature.

With the expertise Ian has developed over many years and his creativity, Ian is a successful Glass Artist in his own right and has been commissioned, or has had work bought by many Studio Glass collectors. Collections include The Art Gallery of Western Australia, Australian National Glass Collection, Art Bank, Australian Capital Equity, and many private collections both in Australia and overseas.

Not only does Perth Art Glass excel in the area of contemporary Custom Textured Glass (slumped glass) but we also are renowned for our skills in Leadlight/Stained glass both in commercial, domestic & ecclesiastical in either contemporary or traditional design. Ian is one of the few qualified leadlighters capable of full restoration of Stained Glass into stone masonry.

Who is Perth Art Glass

Colonial Stained Glass Pty Ltd was established in 1983 by Ian Dixon, as a leadlight manufacturing studio. Within four years of operation the business grew to become one of Perth’s leading studios. Frustration due to lack of available materials and no new innovation in Perth led to Colonial Stained Glass becoming a self-sufficient supplier, manufacturer and creator of Art Glass products. This enabled Ian and his staff to facilitate and develop fresh ideas for the Stained Glass Industry.
Always at the cutting edge of Art Glass development, Colonial Stained Glass forged strong relationships with many suppliers both in Australia and Overseas. On the 1st October 2005 Colonial Stained Glass changed its name to Perth Art Glass to reflect the growing diversity in this field. Perth Art Glass is now Western Australia’s largest supplier of Art Glass Products. Ian has been instrumental in bringing many overseas products to the Western Australian market that had previously been unavailable.
Our Tradesmen are qualified Art Glass Glaziers and our work is completed to meet the current stringent AS1288 safety standards.  Our expertise, experience and knowledge are essential to enable your desired style of decorative glass to comply with these standards. Our consultations with architects & designers are often invaluable to the successful completion of the Art Glass project.
