Lava Glass Studio
In the Lava Glass Studio, the public can view the glassblowing process by master glassblower and owner of Lava Glass, Lynden Over. Lynden is famous for his Volcanic Series, a range of vases, bowls, and paperweights that are inspired by New Zealand's striking scenery. Currently, the Volcanic Series comprises 19 different landscape designs.
Lava Glass Gallery
All pieces in the Lava Glass Gallery are individually made on site. They, therefore, all vary slightly in shape size and design, making them original artworks. Each piece is signed and dated by the artist and makes for a perfect souvenir, gift or collector's item. Lynden Over's New Zealand inspired glass art is also available online and can be shipped worldwide.
Lava Glass Sculpture Garden
The Lava Glass Sculpture Garden is set in an acre of manicured grounds with more than 600 glass sculptures. It makes you feel like Alice in Wonderland, with fields of glass flowers, ponds, glass korus, mushrooms and a 15 piece waterfall. The New Zealand Gardens Trust has endorsed this sculpture garden as a 'Garden of Significance'. Don't miss this must see attraction on your visit to Taupō.
