Glass Alchemy

Glass Alchemy began in 2000, when our parents, Henry Grimmett and Susan Webb-Grimmett brought their passion for science and art together to create a colour palette for the emerging borosilicate art scene. When Glass Alchemy started, the industry was a very different place than it is today. Colour selection was almost non-existent and Henry and Susan needed all their dedication, creativity and passion to build a healthy foundation for this new industry.

As the second generation of family business owners, with over a decade of experience, we are committed to continuing our company’s trailblazing legacy.  The beauty of being a small, family business is that we get to imagine the future of our industry and make our vision come true. We come to work every day with the goal of making the best, most exciting glass this industry has ever seen. We love what we do!

Glass Alchemy has been a pioneer from day one and we will continue to strive to be on the forefront of this amazing industry.
