News

The latest news from the Colete Halstead Glass studio.

Hedgerow Collection is a personal favourite of mine, one of the panels has been shaped and now ready for the next stage of its journey, to illuminate. I started to make this very lamp over a year ago, getting it finished has been worth the wait, I love it, hope you do too 🌿💚 #HedgerowCollectionCHG #TableLamp

Hello, today I’m keeping warm by making my glass earrings. Have you treated yourself to a pair of these beautiful ‘Spirit’ glass drops yet? Find them in my stockists and also available on the website 💜

A late one tonight at the glass studio, I’m just laying down the background layer for my Moon Gazing Hare glass table lamp. It takes a steady hand, fine cut stencils and a whole lot of powder to get to this stage. The colour will fire brighter! 🙏💙

Is it too early to talk Christmas Decs? Planning ahead for this year's designs & revisiting these cuties from a few years back. Here's my West Highland Terrier hanger that I sent to my lovely friends Pat & Tony to remember their adorable family member Wompy, he was a pretty special little one. It looked great on their 2018 tree and they send me a lovely photo each year ❤️

We’ve been beavering away filling the smaller kiln with glass cabochon beads for my lovely jewellery range. So rewarding the next day seeing them all fired on the kiln shelf, now for setting them!

Hello, I hope you’re all keeping well. Crazy, no rest for me since before Christmas, firing Winter decorations well into February. Fearful of the energy prices causing havoc with my business so have changed my schedule. We’ve been filling & firing my large kiln daily to keep warm & before my bill doubles !!
Today I couldn’t get any gas for my workshop heater, so am glad of the warmth from the kiln which heats the studio overnight.
These are indeed unusual times, keep safe 🙏🔥
