Artisan glassmakers Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones produce internationally acclaimed works from their studio in Rosedale Abbey, continuing a local glass-making tradition that has endured since the 16th century.

To celebrate their 25th anniversary year, Gillies Jones explore the place they call home in a stunning exhibition of blown and engraved glassware that reflects the marks left over time by geology, water, nature and human endeavour.
