contemporary (glass) art

Europe´s largest gallery for contemporary glass art.

With many different artists we offer something unique in Europe on the shores of Lake Maggiore


In our three rooms in Ascona we exhibit the works of our artists, sorted according to the six themes "shiny glass", "refreshing water", "lovely moods", "noble dark", "beauty of nature" and "pop art".

A variety of production techniques and styles can be found, which can sometimes be more and sometimes less associated with the different countries of origin of the artists.

Manual glass production is an intangible cultural heritage of humanity

Peter Kuchler III at work.

In December 2023, UNESCO declared the beautiful manual glassmaking an intangible cultural heritage of humanity.

The traditional craft was nominated for inclusion on the UNESCO list by Finland, France, Spain, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Germany on the grounds that a lot of patience, endless creativity and teamwork characterize manual glassmaking. We are delighted that UNESCO has recognized the creative power of this craft.

The community of glass artists preserves this special craft tradition with impressive commitment. We are convinced that the knowledge and skills of our humanity will be preserved for a long time to come and are very happy to make our modest contribution to this.
