Seeing Lee's posting of her display inspired this one. I think we did this once before; I would love to see how others are displaying their collections.

In the last year or so I put the finishing touches on two built-ins. The challenge I find with collecting is keeping the balance so that it doesn't looking like one is hoarding.

    Mac, your shelves are really wonderful - what a classy way to display your glass. And you can see each individual piece so well - I know exactly what you mean about displaying without making it look like hoarding!! ;)

    Hi David. Thank you. It was the shelves that inspired me. These were made by a local artist. They are construction grade iron poles used to support buildings while excavation work is being done. He added iron clamps and tempered glass. I thought it was a brilliant idea using the concept of reclaim/reuse. I am not really a big fan of Ikea personally; coincidence perhaps?

    Mac, I am loving your use of space and displaying your fantastic glass. To showcase in different ways! Hmmm.... Gives me food for thought when I have a house. Thank you for your share my friend!

    hi mac, i'm not an ikea addict too-) it just look of some "dressing" of thiere catalogue. i'm living in an attic so its quite difficult for me to find some display for my glass and ceramics... this solution sounds the best. just need to find where to buy the same system-) or similare in good quality. i've tested in ikea shop this similar and.... i'm worried it does not look really a "safe solution"

    Thanks Lee, I appreciate your comments.

    David - This one is solid - not earth quake proof but solid. Earth quakes are a rarity in this part of the world but I guess anything is possible. Speaking of Ikea - they do have those solid pressed board units that are stackable book shelves although they wouldn't allow much light on the glass : http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/40275846/

    idcloisonnne - thanks for the comment. The one problem I have noticed is that friends with little ones never relax when they come to visit. I admit my place is not kid friendly - it never had to be part of my thinking. I admit I get a little on easy too when little ones are in the house...:)

    Thank you. It is not heavy at all. It is red lacquered tray that a good friend bought for me.
