Blowing at Shakspeare Glass

While on our tour of the South West we had the pleasure of visiting Shakspeare glass in Taunton. Will, the owner and glass blower extraordinaire, set me the challenge blow by own glass object. This is something that I have always wanted to have a go at but until now never had the opportunity.

Today the results of my effort arrived in the post. I will let you decide if it was successful. 

Emily also took a brief video of my first attempt at working with hot glass. You can see the anxiety on my face throughout!

    I think it’s fab! Yes it’s unevenly shaped, but that makes it even better!

  2. lOVE IT TOO.The unconventional abstract design is part of the attraction.In a world of mass production and bombarded images of perfection, simplistic designs shine through.You have unearthed a hidden talent! (From UK designer/ maker).
