A Cool, Quiet Hotshop

August 28, 2018

The furnace is quiet and cold. It’s a situation no glassmaker enjoys, but a necessary one to ensure full maintenance of all combustion systems. As the weather becomes cooler, it’s even more of a thermal shock following the wonderful summer. We are looking forward to relighting the heart of the building and blowing glass again. Provisional dates looks to be mid October for the first gather.

If you are coming up to visit the studio, there’s always a warm welcome, tho,¬† you may need to wear an extra layer.

Fox Glove

August 3, 2018

Our second seasonal design for 2018 is a subtle milky pink bowl with a transparent pink lip wrap.

This bowl is a study of the wild flower, Fox Glove and the abundant ‘stands’ of flowers that have filled the hedgerows of Rosedale.

Each hand blown and engraved bowl is signed, dated and numbered and available to order online here or in person directly from our Rosedale studio.
