Our Story

 

 

Inspired by Stained Glass

In 1978 our stained glass studio workshop was established.  20 years later we placed a few contemporary mouth blown glass vases and small leaded panels in our studio window.  We were amazed and delighted by the positive reaction from our customers, and soon these different and unique glass designs were purchased and off to their new homes.

Handmade and Mouth Blown Glass

We have since continued our love of creating and sourcing different contemporary glass objects, and over many years have designed and created our own fused glass art and glass jewellery here in the studio.
I am still excited to show new pieces of unique mouth blown glass to our customers, all of which are stamped with the distinctive JC signature of John Corley; our own unique range of handmade jewellery; and contemporary glassware by glass artists including Peter Layton, Bob Crooks, and Will Shakspeare.
