Blown

  • Contemporary Glass Studio
  • Commissions undertaken
  • Glass memorials

Blown in Dartmouth is the only contemporary hot glass studio in the South Hams. Nick Orsler, the owner has been designing and blowing glass for over 20 years and directs a small team of glass blowers at a studio nearby.

Nick’s work has been exhibited and purchased all over the world and he shares his skills by offering weekend glassmaking lessons.

Nick and his wife Jacky opened the gallery in 2005 and have made beautiful designed glass accessible to everyone, believing that studio glass doesn’t have to be inordinately expensive, a unique, signed one-off piece can be bought for as little as £14. Nick has worked closely with Interior Designers and Architects and welcomes commission work.

Nick and Jacky also offer two other services – the chance to have beautiful casts of your baby or child´s hands and feet in solid glass. Names engraved and date stamped at no extra cost. Their other service is that Blown can create a very special freeform sculpture, vase, plate or bowl to include your choice of colours and a very small quantity of ashes of a lost one. The addition of the ashes to the glass can create some wonderful effects and makes the piece very special. They can at no extra cost engrave a personalised special message on the base of the piece making it a unique keepsake.

The beautiful colours and shapes make stunning pieces for the home or as a perfect gift. Details of all current and past work can be found on their web site.

The gallery opening hours are Monday – Saturday 10am – 5pm, Sunday – 11am – 3pm.

Spend the day in Dartmouth and explore its little streets with houses which have a perfect view out towards the Castle. Take a ferry trip to nearby Kingsbridge or over the water to the Steam Railway.
