A Great Day Out For Glass Collectors
At its inception the National Glass Fair was the first all-glass antiques and collectables fair. Over 100 quality dealers exhibit at our glass fairs, including exhibitors that sell a wide variety of items from throughout the ages.
History has been made at the new White House Cone – museum of glasswith the lighting of the furnace that will be the centerpiece of resident glassmaker Allister Malcolm’s glassblowing studio in the heart of the new museum.
The furnace takes some hours to reach operational temperature but will be ready to go by the time that the appropriately named The Heat is On! – the inaugural event organized by Allister in association with Simon Bruntnell – commences this weekend. The event will include ‘official’ celebrations of the warmed-up furnace.
