Small Impact Studio is a glass blowing studio in the wine region of the Southern Highlands (NSW), creating glass homewares and jewellery designs, while embracing sustainability practices.
As part of our commitment to regenerative design, we are always thinking about what and how we make.
Scott Chaseling and Gina Fairley collectively bring over fifty years of working and making in the arts to Small Impact Studio.
Scott has presented over 35 solo exhibitions nationally and internationally across his glass practice, while Gina has worked as an arts journalist and exhibition manager before turning to her creative jewellery practice. The pair have run art spaces in Berlin, San Francisco and Sydney, and now turn their focus to the Southern Highlands, located half way between Sydney and Canberra in Australia.
This new venture was created in 2021 to produce high-end design works, alongside curated events, workshops and public demonstrations - all in a celebration of regenerative design and sustainable practice.
Formerly trading as Studio OneFive, we changed our name to Small Impact Studio in 2022.
Currently we are only opening our doors by appointment. However, we wanted to share with you the Small Impact Studio experience.
We often hold open studio days and demonstrations, so sign up to our newsletter to get the scoop on when we are next open.
Our lead designer Scott Chaseling has been repurposing bottles since 1990, whether as large-scale exhibition works or production pieces.
Small Impact Studio extends that ethos, placing sustainable practice at the core of what we do, across both our homewares and jewellery designs.
Scott says: 'It's about creating beautiful objects that don't necessarily look recycled. It is about creating impact through desirability.'
We work with local partners to reuse their bottles and packing materials. Thank you all for joining us on this journey.
