Look down an ordinary London street lined with a regiment of Victorian terraced houses and wedged in at the end is one of my favourite places in London the Aaronson Noon Glass Studio.
A place of rich imagery, industrial chimneys reach down, a clutch of glowing firey furnaces, the chiaroscuro straight out of the world of Wright of Derby paintings, Beelzebub would be at home here.
The team work away creating the most exquisite pieces from molten glass, that is tamed and coaxed into covetable statement lamps, vases, bowls, finials, door knobs, there’s a space for one of their pieces of alchemy in every home.
Get a feel for this amazing place this weekend and snap up a bargain in their sale. If the bug bites take a glass blowing course with the Adam Aaronson and learn the secrets of creating in glass.
