Picked up a leaflet at Pen Hall, where we stayed in January 2016. Decided to take trip out on a wet and windy day with no real expectations, but we were keen to see the glass dragons pictured in the pamphlet. We were very presently surprised by the welcome received from the husband and wife owners and producers of some... More

I'm not sure there are many items in Wales more iconic than dragons, and this little gallery has some of the most fantastic glass dragon sculptures we've seen. They range in size from tiny desktop versions, up to ones that hang from the wall. Speaking with the artist, each piece takes months to create as the colors are applied and... More

A second visit, two years apart, has convinced me that David is an amazing artist. He is extremely friendly and I always enjoy his banter. If he offers to demonstrate "blobbing" to you, take him up on his offer. He will create a magnificent glass sculpture while chatting to you and cracking jokes. The finished piece will be exquisite and... More

Staying for a wonderful short break at Tyddn Llan, we picked up a leaflet about the Glassblobbery. So glad we did. We live in Cheshire and will certainly visit every time we are in this part of Wales. The shop is full of the most beautiful crafts - mostly but not only glass - at amazingly reasonable prices. But the... More

My husband and I visited this summer. We loved it. The shop was full of beautiful glass objects, each one a work of art, and catered for all budgets. We came away with a number of charming little glass animals. However, the highlight of the visit was definitely the artist whose sense of humour and jokes as he talked to... More

We only found out about this place the day before but the leaflet looked attractive and it was on our way. In fact, it would have been well worth a detour. This is the best glass sculptor we've seen since the 90s. He works on-site so you can watch a demonstration and is happy to answer questions. There are plenty... More

Wonderful artist who loves to chat. Gallery is full of so many tempting glass blobs it is difficult to leave without being piled high with little boxes. Definitely worth a visit.

We called in hoping to take part in making something but unfortunately they no longer do this, so the very friendly owner gave us a quick demonstration. He made us a penguin which we collected the following day. Although it only lasted around 10 minutes, they guy must of popped off at least 30 'dad' jokes whilst we were there,... More
