About
An independent glassblowing studio / gallery in Sandown, Isle of Wight. A family run business now in it's 20th year making beautiful hand sculpted art glass inspired by the natural surroundings of the island. Witness the magic of this ancient craft with their free glass blowing demonstrations which happen throughout the day (in season) Not only is every piece a stunning work of art, much of gallery itself was designed and hand built by the family, giving it a truly memorable touch. Their vibrant and unique glass makes perfect souvenirs and gifts for all occasions. The Evans family look forward to meeting and introducing you to the world of glass! School and large group bookings are available on request.

Visited this little gem. The display of beautiful items were mesmerising. I want to purchase a vase but I was travelling home by train so it was not practical. I plain to order a vase on my return to be delivered. Keep up the good work.

This was brilliant!
It IS well worth the trip just to browse through the beautiful vibrant glass pieces and Hannah's glass jewellery.
But what I really wanted was to make some myself, and Ed and Hannah could not have been nicer. I was an unbooked walk-in, they said the furnace would be hot enough in half an hour and they made the experience a joy. Ed was totally unhurried helping me gather and work the glass, and was happy to chat through what was happening inside the glass itself. And when it came to making my coloured piece he really listened to what I wanted (a flame) and the secondary colours I wanted to see peeking out of it, and was committed to helping me pick colours and showing me how apply them to and to work the glass to get the right effect. And my beautiful glass arrived this morning and I'M SO HAPPY with it.

We came upon The Glory art studio walking from our hotel to the beach We are so glad we did, the husband and wife who run the studio are a lovely friendly couple. The glass they produce is beautiful and of high quality. We were lucky enough to watch a demonstration, all I can say is, he knows his materials well and is a very skilled glass blower. They are so knowledgeable about their craft it was refreshing to watch. I would highly recommend a visit it was one of the highlights of our holiday

Single area comprising showroom entrance and manufacturing area at the rear. Glass is very tactile but no touching permitted in order to limit the transmission of COVID

Ed & Hannah work really hard, great choice of small jewellery items to larger vases and statement pieces, great quality, good value and very friendly! The studio is lovely and they make every effort to talk to their customers about what they do, how they do it.

Sister bought a small Robin here as a gift. Varied prices. You can watch them work sometimes too. Sometimes they will make one of their items but with a slight difference if after that something special. Amazinginly they do personalised items and varied items for a loved ones departed ashes. Friendly and knowledgeable man and his wife does the jewellery. I would only say, there needs to be more on display please :)

Ed created a specific piece of wall art, based on a high level description - it fascinates and changes at different angles and lights - amazing. We have also bought several of his stock items and have loved each one

I've been to all the art glass makers I can find on the island and this little studio in Sandown is my favourite by far. Beautiful designs very reasonably priced and lovely people too. Only a short walk from the beachfront at Sandown, you can walk up and see what they have, and demonstrations too. Nice bit of education for children and adults alike as well as lovely things!
