The staff of Wathaurong Glass & Arts takes pleasure in presenting our company, products & a brief insight into our heritage.
In 1998 The company was formed to express Aboriginal art in glass, the techniques used to produce our products include the use of kiln forming (slumping glass), sandblasting or any other technique we feel is suitable to achieve the desired result. Great pride is taken in producing unique artwork with a net result of high quality glass products, current products including slumped Windows & Doors glass to Australian standards, Kitchen & Bathroom Splashbacks, Artistic Platters, Bowls and corporate gifts / Awards / trophies etc. We have & will continue to work on commercial commissions that don’t have cultural connotations such as producing glass light lenses, corporate logos & kiln formed textured glass and more. Located in Geelong, Australia we supply and arrange delivery of all our products like kitchen & bathroom splashbacks, custom made Shower Screen, kiln formed Window and Door glass and other glass art pieces Australia wide.
The name “WATHAURONG” (wathawurrung or wadda wurrung) is a recognised tribe, it consisted of 25 groups (clans). The boundaries of Wathaurong are from Geelong (Victoria), North to Werribee River, North West to Bacchus Marsh, South West to Cressy, South East to Colac, East to Lorne & North back to Geelong encompassing the Bellarine Peninsula.
All our staff are Aboriginal & the company is a not for profit business owned by Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative LTD which is an Aboriginal community control organisation, Wathaurong Glass LTD is structured so that the community of Wathaurong & the broader community will be the beneficiaries of any profit. Were possible we purchase from the local community as we believe it is better for Geelong and the environment(Less Transport Emissions). See below for some of our local suppliers.
