Heart Of Glass


It's carnival day so gearing up to watch the parade come past the shop. Whether you're in Wellingborough for this, or off at Pride, or Hop Farm Festival, or any of the myriad of events this weekend, we hope you enjoy yourselves!

Yesterday we got in some beautiful glassware. The collection is called Smashing Glass and is by local artist Dorne Boddington. They are really brightening up the shop. We have vases, candle goblets, candle bowls, lantens, fruit bowls, trinket boxes (I really want to use the phase 'objet d'art' but that might be a step too far into the pretentious!). All the ones that are designed for candles come with them and are ready to shine.

So somewhat predictably, the pick of the day had to be some of the Smashing Glass. This large Buddha bowl is one of my personal favourites. It catches your eye at a distance but it's not until you get up close you can appreciate all the intricate details and the hours of work that must have gone into it. It's absolutely stunning. We can't guarantee good karma if you buy it, but you'd be supporting local artists and independent retail at the same time, so we think you'd definitely deserve some. :)

Have a good weekend!
