Lots of hard work and time put into the Pieces some the pieces outside were interesting also.. I think they need a more eye catching sign, as the one they have can be easy missed.. JUST a thought..

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.
