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.

Join our email list and receive new of the limited edition launches. Our new design will be launched later this week.

We design and make four new limited editions each year of the wild flowers we find growing in and around our studio. Our studio is in the middle of the North York Moors, a stunning, rich, diverse and ever changing landscape.

A wide variety of colourful wild flowers have been returning to the grass verges in the National Park since cutting the summer grasses ceased.  The wild flowers have been spreading slowly through the valley bottoms.

Lilly of the Valley

April 24, 2017

We are patiently waiting for the Lilly of the Valley to flower.

Our next design to launch on 21st June, celebrates this beautiful, scented flower as part of the ongoing series of limited edition bowls.
The roadside verges within the North York Moors National Park are no longer cut back, creating the conditions for the return of many wild flowers.

These small ‘wildlife corridors’ are a reminder of nature’s bounty, beauty and strength.

The Cuckoo Flower Limited Edition Bowl

Cuckoo Flower Bowl
Limited Edition of 50 Bowls
Made to order in a colour of your choice, this bowl features the spring cuckoo flower, so named because it flowers as the cuckoo calls.
It’s a delicate pinky-white-to-lilac flower, now abundant in Rosedale as the verges, now designated wildlife corridors by the North York Moors National Park, are left uncut.
The variety of wild flowers is increasing each year and they’re becoming easier to spot in the wild verges. 

All the wild flowers are exquisite and delicate, an essence we hope this bowl captures.

To order a bowl give us a call on 01751 417550 or email studio@gilliesjonesglass.co.uk

You Curl Around Me…..

June 1, 2013

Like a Fern in the Spring ! yes I do like John Matryn and he put it so well. “You curl around me Like a fern in the spring Lie down here Let me sing the things you bring”

Many memories of old friends and good times come back. Ah,  I enjoyed todays walk in the spring sunshine seeing the wildlife and flowers in the verges.
