Our Story

The Seein glass story

Glass helps you to see inside to the heart of a building. We create glass that helps you see the heart of those who dwell within.

Seein Glass is a company that has grown organically, planted from a seed of creativity and joyfulness. It was created and founded by Joe Ross and Renae Harkness, a husband and wife team. Together, they feel that the business fuses all the skills and experience they’ve gathered in their lives. They also feel that the business found them, rather than the other way around!

Joe has years of professional experience in print and glass manufacturing and a passion for a job well done. Renae also has print in the blood, as a descendant of David Syme, fearlessly progressive editor-in-chief of the Age in the 19th century. In addition to this, Renae worked in the mineral industry, providing specimens for museums, jewelers, artists, and healers. She also has experience in hypnotherapy, counseling and youth work, as well as strong creative abilities as a designer and professional photographer.

When one day an architect asked the couple the name of their business, Renae responded with “Seein”, a combination of the names of their two daughters, Sienna and Indi – and the company was born!

From tiny beginnings

One day, while experimenting with creative possibilities, Joe merged one of his photographs of Melbourne city with one Renae had taken of a crystal and printed it onto the surface of a small piece of glass.

Much to their surprise, this little experiment turned out to be a large scale vinyl print in the Diamond bar at Etihad stadium and the rest is history.

Truly a family business, the couple’s daughter Indi contributed a picture she took when she was three years old – and which was eventually sold to a client in WA for a splashback!

Glass is the window to the soul

Seein was created and founded by Joe Ross and Renae Harkness, a skilled and passionate husband and wife team, who united their creative and technical skills and experience gained throughout their years of combined professional experience.

Amazing result. An idea turned into a magnificent reality by real professionals that makes us smile every time we see it.
