Beautiful glass. Friends where very impressed & purchased some pieces. A little hard to find once leaving the bitumen road signs, after someone knocked down the sign (1st house on the left).

Amazing creations in glass and worth visiting the store/ workshop even though we missed the actual glass blowing. The lovely talented lady who works with James described her beautiful and difficult craft from woe to go for us in detail. Thank you so much.

This glass blowing studio has great pieces of glass artworks. There is a wide range of gift options, garden ornaments and at times the opportunity to watch James creating these beautiful pieces of glass.
