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.

Summer Shut Down

July 22, 2017

If you come up to visit the studio these next few weeks, you’ll find it eerily quiet and cool.

Our furnace is off for annual maintenance.

Just spent a very lovely two weeks in Turkey working with Janusz Pozniac and 6 students at a glass school just north of Istanbul.

We can recommend Cam Ogaci if you are looking for a short course or indeed, a wonderful busmans.
