About

Gotham Glassworks by Greg Locke

Gotham Glassworks is a custom fine art glass proprietorship located in the historic village of Schomberg, Ontario, Canada, a scenic 45 minute drive north-west of Toronto in King Township; Greg Locke is owner and operator.

Greg and his wife Tracy moved to “Dr. Kay’s House” (as it’s locally called), a lovely 3/4 acre century home in May, 2006.

They finished the preservation and renovation of an 80-plus year horse barn on the property into a glass studio in 2007. Its rustic exterior conceals a modern operational workspace inside.  Gotham Glassworks officially relaunched in June, 2008.

Greg has been producing his own unique style of stained glass artwork since 1996. His Father picked up the hobby after he retired; after watching him make lamps and window catchers for friends and family, he tried making a simple lamp and liked it. Enjoying the result and challenge, and to compliment to his interest in furniture design and construction, he starting making more.

“Fusing offers much more opportunity to be creative and expand my offering of works to include objects and shapes I could never accomplish with foil or lead came. I am very excited by this transition to kiln-fired art!”
