Can you post glass ?

December 15, 2018

Can you post your glass safely is a question we are often asked, and yes is the answer.

We use good quality packing materials and a sturdy box to protect the glass in transit. The Royal Mail delivers all our UK parcels on a guaranteed signed for next day service. If you are not in, they will keep it safe until you re arrange delivery or collect it from the local office. We send our glass successfully throughout Europe and Worldwide.

Glassmaking – Root Vases

November 15, 2018

We’ve been making our small Root vases this week, in a wide variety of colours. These vases are so easy to use for the non flower arrangers amongst us (myself included), any seasonal flowers seem to position themselves effortlessly.

Though not available to order online, give us a call or an email if you’d like us to post one off to you.

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.
