Summer Dish

Commission
Published on Wednesday, 5 August, 2020

Summer Dish is a recently completed private commission. It is always exciting for us to work with people on bespoke pieces, the commission process is an enjoyable one that takes our work in interesting directions that we would not have gone by ourselves.

Collaborating with our customers provides a constant source of inspiration to us and it is so rewarding to create objects that have personal meaning intrinsically woven into them.

In this case the client wanted a mixed floral piece to include Dahlia and Fuschia flowers.

Despite the distance and the coronavirus restrictions we were easily able to communicate about colours, shapes and ideas with drawings and photographs by email. The outcome is a unique and bespoke piece made to suit our customer perfectly.


Landscape

Published on Tuesday, 4 August, 2020

Landscape is one of our longest running studio ranges. We can’t remember exactly when the very first piece was made but we think it was 20 years ago when we moved from the Broadfield House glass museum and into our current studio.

Our only range that doesn’t use solid colour but chips and grains of coloured glass, they are a nod to our glassblowing heritage and the colourful and playful ‘after hours’ pieces that the old glass factory makers used to produce at the end of the glassblowing day.

We have made and sold many variations of our landscape vases and bowls over the years, including a colour way inspired by and developed for sale at Highgrove gardens. More recently one of our new landscape bottles was commissioned and presented to Sir David Attenborough.

Current pieces from this range are available to purchase direct from our studio, also from some of our stockists and galleries and from our website
