The treasure we found in Jason’s storage box at the Glass Studio!

As usual Jason leans to squirrelling away his glass and hiding it in storage boxes.. This particular vase is actually quiet new, it was recently made in about July or August 2016.

We have gone ahead and added it to Jason’s Etsy shop because it just is too stunning to wait for it’s forever home at the glassblowing studio any longer.

The vase is very thick and quite heavy but doesn’t lose it’s elegance at all. You know how sometimes thick glass isn’t very elegant? Well this vase is stunning and exquisite! What an incredible statement piece it will be in somebody’s home who also loves this rich lucious colour!

If you are getting the feeling that I am reluctant to part with this beauty then you would have guessed right! But we often move house and until we one day own our very own beautiful little villa we shouldn’t hold on to objects of desire that should really be enjoyed in the present moment.

Let’s not delay! May you feel inspired to acquire this treasure.

With many greetings from the office where I work for Jason,
Birgit

Jason’s Etsy Shop is back up and running

After a long wait and not a moment too soon Jason’s Shop is back online and fully functioning. A couple of the postage prices need to be corrected as we have a few shipping estimates set to too low. 

If you would like to gift handblown heirloom glass for Christmas then we can no longer supply in time but you could print out a picture of the object of your choice and Jason will make it to commission to be delivered in january.

Sorry there have been so few personal words lately, it’s been a busy time getting geared up for the seasonal occasions as well as Jason starting a new part time glassblowing job with fixed hours. They threw a party the first day that he worked! What a welcome that was!

Jason has been working for other people’s glass dreams in the last 3-4 weeks and not created as much as we would have liked from his own projects. Slowly but surely he is continuing his own line of tableware and Nuts & Seeds projects.
