    I recently visited Gibraltar and was blown away by the beauty and exquisite designs of the glass blown here. It was fascinating to be able to watch the process, each person seemed to work by telepathy, as they did not need to speak, they knew what was needed at each step and the flowed seamlessly almost like a ballet, producing the most wonderful glass wear. The artists, craftsmen, which is all that I can describe them as, we're pleased to answer the questions, which we asked after the glass that was being made had been placed in the warm oven to cool slowly. It was a most gratifying experience and one that I felt was magical. Thank you to all the artists who provided such a great experience.

    Amazing craftsmanship on display in the free exhibition. The artifacts are simply stunning and it's obvious why the command such high prices, but simply irresistible
