A wonderful display of glass prepared on the premises by Stephen and Kate. This time we managed to leave without purchasing some of the glass (believe me that is hard!)

Small workshop around the back of the village but very pricey products on sale. Nice for a browse though to see very fine glassware.

Always like looking into glass production, and this was top end market ware, the lady behind it all was very informative, I just wish I could justify £4.5k on a fantastic bowl. Maybe the one at £200 next time.

The couple making (blowing?) the glass are very friendly and invite you to watch and comment as they make their exquisite glass bowls. They are exhibited in museums as well as high class shops (I believe). Surely an investment for the future should you buy...More

This was a wonderful find after a superb walk. The glassware in the studio is stunning, perfectly formed and very very classy. Once you are on their mailing list you will receive opportunities to purchase limited editions which are well worth it. An antique of...More
