The Gallery specialises in the work of British and Nordic studio artists working with glass and builds on the the private collection of Duncan & Liz Timms. It complements a number of other venues in the area, notably the Glass Factory in Boda Glasbruk, which opened in June 2011 and shows a comprehensive historical collection of work produced by the Johansfors, Åfors, Boda and Kosta glass works, as well as hosting a number of contemporary exhibitions. The Glass Factory also houses a hot-shop which is used by a variety of visiting artists. Another historical collection of Swedish glass is in Smålands Museum in Växjö,.
Glass factories still in production in Glasriket include Kosta, Nybro, Skruf and Pukeberg. The Kristal shop in Måleras show work by Mats Jonasson alongside work by Swedish studio artists. Glass studios in the area include Transjö Hyttan, Erikshyttan, Bergdala, and Mickejohans Konstglas.
In keeping with the traditions of Johansfors, the Gallery has a particular emphasis on engraved glass.
