Handmade Bristol Blue Glass Medium Tall Vase
The Bristol artisans have been making stunning high-quality glassware and jewellery for over 30 years using time-honoured skills passed down over decades. Peter Sinclair and James Adlington together started this venture back in the late 80s when the traditional English glassmaking techniques were in severe danger of being lost forever. With the aim of reviving a glass-making tradition in Bristol, they were instrumental in re-establishing this legacy art form that had been lost for over 60 years. The company makes some of the finest free-blown glassware in England and train many apprentices to make high quality tableware and jewellery using simple ancient techniques and basic hand tools. Today, they are regarded as the ‘original’ blue glass manufacturers.
