However, his extreme skill as a glass artist combined with the fact that he is widely regarded as a pioneer in the contemporary Australian Glass movement has not gone unnoticed and his magnificent work is fast becoming highly desirable. There is no doubt Knottenbelt has been a leader in the Australian Glass Movement. He was the first person to commence work at the Adelaide Jam Factory in 1975 and has worked within the area of Contemporary Glass since then.
He was also a co-founder of the National body for Glass Artists AusGlass. Moving to Victoria in 1983, Knottenbelt set up a private studio in the Yarra Valley in 1984 naming it Britannia Creek Glass.Knottenbelt has exhibited consistently with his works featuring in public and private collections in Australia and around the world.
