Our furnace is now ramping down in temperature for annual summer maintenance.
We bring her down in temperature slowly and when the time comes back up again very slowly to ensure all the ceramics in there do not suffer a thermal shock. Thermal chock and a cracked crucible is a glassmakers nightmare and we do all we can to avoid the situation.
We plan to fire her back up again early September and begin blowing glass over the winter months... shorts all year round in here.
In the mean time, the studio is open and welcoming visitors and we will be round and about working with the glass in other ways. When you visit you may also meet Peter in the gallery who is helping us out.
Open as usual Monday - Saturday 10am - 4pm
Sunday afternoons 2-4pm
