Visit Ashes into Glass ®

We appreciate the trust that our clients place in our company, our process and our craftspeople and we are open for visitors six days a week.

Barleylands Craft Village

The creation process is carried out in our studios and workshops at Barleylands Craft Village, Essex (near London), England. This has been our home for more than 20 years. Our founders James Watts and Bill Rhodes have been handmaking glass here since 1996.

Making The Gemstone

Visitors can see first our process of incorporating the ashes with the colored crystals and molten glass to make the gemstone, this cools down slowly in our kiln after which we will complete the remaining stages in the following weeks.

Family & Friends

We welcome clients to bring family or friends to see the process, there is enough space in our workshops.
