Posted

What it is:

Along with owner Christopher Belleau’s own whimsical pieces, this nearly 20-year-old gallery is a showcase of glass work by local and nationally known artists, offering a range of unique gifts and decor.

Where to find it: 

Catty-corner to Vartan Gregorian Elementary, this Fox Point shop is a stone’s throw away from Three Wheel Studio and other artsy retail along Wickenden Street.

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Fanciful bouquets and colorful blossoms greet you when you step inside, but you haven’t taken a wrong turn and ended up in a florist shop – these intricate glass flowers are Gallery Belleau’s specialty. With a motto of “for those who seek the unique,” Belleau displays the work of more than 30 artists, most of it made just across the river in East Providence at his Belleau Art Glass studio. Find a range of vases, fish, waves, ornaments, paperweights, and other glass sculptures interspersed with metalwork, pottery, handmade wooden boxes, and jewelry. Friendly staff will even help you make a custom bouquet of glass flowers to infuse a feeling of spring in your home that will never wilt.
