About Us

Nothing is too impossible at Escape Glass.

As a husband and wife team based in Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand. We,  Relda and Carey McDowall, 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.  

Escape Glass manufacture what is currently New Zealand's only toughened slumped glass. Hand crafted and customised designs help us to taylor 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.

No two pieces are ever the same. 

Between us have we  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.

In addition to glass slumping we offer printed vinyl images on glass (these are perfect for wall art and splash backs), vinyl branding elements, etching and custom graphics from our in house graphic designer.
