BBC One – Countryfile

April 4, 2019

We have been very lucky and met this lovely fella a few weeks ago, when BBC Countryfile came to spend a day with us.

This coming Sunday  you’ll be able to see our time together on BBC ONE 7th April at 7pm.

The programme marks the 70th anniversary of the creation of the National Parks.

We are delighted to have small part on the show, where we will be spinning an overlay glass plate and taking John through the process and the landscape that inspires our work.

 

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.

Andy Goldsworthy – Rosedale

July 2, 2018

Artist Andy Goldsworthy is making a series of works in Rosedale, which will eventually form a beautiful walking trail in Northdale.

We are delighted to have made a small contribution to one of the works in the form of an Occulus, for Jobs Well, and we are really looking forward to the completion of the project which is supported by the David Ross Foundation.

Rosedale’s Weather’s Turned

November 30, 2017

Brrrrrrr, suddenly it’s winter in the Moors. The snow ploughs are out, the abundant red berries have been striped from the Holly trees, and all is quiet and very cold. Love winter……

The Bluebell Limited Edition Bowl

June 16, 2015

The Bluebell Bowl is our new limited edition, celebrating the constancy of the seasons. The piece depicts an accurately scaled scene of these abundant flowers, captured on the way to Rosedale’s Dukka Bridge  – and serves as a permanent reminder of the delights of seeing the annual, joyous, brilliant festival of colour that is the English Bluebell.

They bloomed late in Rosedale this year but our patience was rewarded with banks of this beautiful flower bowing their heads in the late spring sunshine.

Available to order from 18th June
