Glass Sellers Award
As Glass Sellers, we are in a strong position effectively to be “Ambassadors for Glass”, whether it is in our engagement with liverymen of other companies in the City or within our day-to-day engagements at work or socially.
It is ever surprising what arrives on the Clerk’s Office desk. The latest amusement was an email from Liveryman and Glass Collector, Mark Holford who advised that on Ebay there was an Amber, Whitefriars Duck for sale. The significant pointer was the Glass Sellers Coat of Arms on its breast.
Now they are due to show another side of their skills in the studio in the latest series “Salvage Hunters – The Restorers”
WE ARE FINALLY BLOWING GLASS………………
Carl Nordbruch, our glassblower for the last 20 years is now blowing glass at Wilkinson’s new glasshouse in Sittingbourne
Over the last couple of months we have shared with you,the transformation from raw materials to built furnaces, glory holes and lehrs that have been installed
On 21st July,after many months of waiting, the gas was connected. It took a week for the glass to get up to the required temperature of 1140 degrees centigrade. . Carl was then able to blow our first pieces of glass with his skilful assistant Peter.
