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.
