“Chronicle Glass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

What an excellent experience, I love glass in all shapes and forms, and was very lucky to purchase a lovely piece by Brendon Sole. Beautiful bright red, looks perfect in my home.
Thanks

“First time I've seen glass blown”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

We wandered in for about 15 minutes to browse the artwork for sale. It was really interesting being able to lean on the balcony as well and watch the artists at work. Quite warm in there on a hot summers day with the glass furnace going!

“A Fascinating Way To Spend Some Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have visited this studio several times and there is always something new to be seen in the way of techniques. Usually there is someone willing to explain the different steps and time passes very quickly as the next project " comes to life," often in quite a different way from what was expected. There are beautiful pieces for sale, and at a price range to suit most peoples' pockets.
