New Glass is in!

With the current shortage of some Spectrum and System 96 Glass starting to make life a little difficult for our glass artisans, Perth Art Glass is working hard to overcome these shortages by sourcing other brands to fill gaps where ever we can so that our customers are not disadvantaged.

Good News!  Our latest shipment has arrived this week and we have unpacked some beautiful new glasses.

For our Fusing customers we have increased our range of Wissmach 96 colours and brought in a large quantity of Wissmach 96 Clear so that your production can continue as usual.  Wissmach have produced some beautiful complimentary colours to System 96 which we are sure you will appreciate.  Pop into the store and have a look at these great new Wissmach colours and draw some inspiration from them.   We also have good stocks of System 96 Rack packs open giving you squares of System 96 colour at a great price. 

For our Leadlight customers we now have a brand new selection of Vision art glass which you can find in the racks or on our website. This stunning new Leadlight glass has a subtle texture with the clarity of colour similar to antique glass at a very reasonable price.

The Oceanside team have begun to produce glass however it is still some time away from reaching our shores as we have to wait for them to build up their inventory.  We are confident that System 96 and Spectrum glass will be back soon, bigger and better than ever!  In the meantime Perth Art Glass will be doing our best to support our customers through this rough patch
