Ole Chalet - A renovated four bedroom family cottage with giant verandah.

Soap House - A newly built two bedroom cottage with fantastic light


Walking distance from the studio, you could combine your stay with one of our signature experiences, or just immerse yourself in our workshops to discover the process of art glass as it happens. Sip cappuccino at a funky, chunky mosaic table in the Glasstronomique café. Surround yourself in a secret garden of sculpture, glass and living designs that enchant and inspire.

Casted glass - dish

Hot casted stuff

There’s blowing, and there’s casting. 

We make things like salt and butter dishes by dripping molten glass into molds on our steel table (marver). Also toothpick holders. Or wasabi or soap dishes.

Hand pressed to get a dimple or recess, and voila - a chunky piece for everyday use.

Also great for paperweights, trophies, giveaway slabs.
