About Us

Welcome to Escape Glass - Where Creativity Breaks Free!

We formed Escape Glass Ltd. in 2003 and have never looked back. We are so grateful for the chance to bring your designs and ideas to life through glass. 

Established over 20 years ago, Escape Glass is a small and dedicated team of artisans based in the enchanting city of Invercargill, New Zealand. We specialize in crafting exquisite glass art and bespoke glass splashbacks, meticulously handcrafted to elevate your spaces with elegance and creativity.

Escape Glass manufacture what is currently New Zealand's only toughened slumped glass. Hand crafted and customised designs help us to tailor glass designs to your needs. Our one of a kind glass products have the potential to bring the extra wow factor to your home or business.

Inspiration for our hand crafted designs are drawn from New Zealand’s stunning  nature, sea, birds, landscape & Kiwiana culture. Each piece is bespoke and unique.

Every project is custom made. We don’t have pre-made sheets in stock, in fact we don’t have any stock as no two clients or projects are the same. This allows for greater design creativity and flexibility, every job is ‘bespoke’.
No two pieces are ever the same. 

Between us we have over 20 years experience in the glass industry, slumping in particular,  and have developed and grown the product to what you see today. Something we are proud to have displayed in your homes and businesses.

As our slumped glass is all custom made on site, at our Invercargill factory, we are able to work around your range hoods, cupboard and electrical fitting needs. We are pleased to say our glass meets all NZ safety standards and is extremely versatile, practical and low maintenance.

Each glass splashback we produce is meticulously handcrafted, paying attention to every detail to ensure a flawless finish. From intricate designs to vibrant colour palettes, we work closely with our clients to bring their visions to life, turning their kitchens and bathrooms into captivating spaces.
