A while back we all went Glass Blowing with Michael Ruh. Michael makes his own amazing work, vases, jars, bowls etc of which I've always been a big fan. My first studio was next door to Michael and Natascha, in West Norwood.
I used to watch them in amazement at how they make a glass by turning a molten burning hot blob of material skilfully into something that is beautiful and fragile and pure.
Michel and Natascha hold Glass blowing workshops in December so you can have a go at blowing your own Christmas Bauble. I'd thoroughly recommend it, it's great fun and the whole process is mind blowing to me!
Here's some pics of us:
