The Crystal Makers – Stourbridge

May 31, 2014

Stephen made a pilgrimage to Stourbridge yesterday to see the glass cutter Richard Lamming and visit Broadfield House Glass Museum. The museum is a real gem.

Good to see our two pieces in the museum including a bowl specifically purchased for the cameo collection.

Fantastic black and white film below on view at the museum. There are some gems in this film which are as pertinent now for glassmakers as when the movie was made.

The film resonates particularly well with us as the first glass makers of Rosedale were Huguenots and we both studied glass making in Stourbridge, “glass making is a way of life,  It gets in your blood”.
