Jola Glass Studio, Chipping Campden

Last evening we were invited to spend the evening with Robbie and Joan Kingston and their friends. Joan and Robbie run Jola Glass Studio - this is a serious plug for Joan's unique glass fusion designs.

The evening was a great success with many friends sharing stories and generally coming to conclusion that we have chosen to live in an area that is very special to us. We define the area as having "rural sophistication" and this definition met with universal concurrence. Something of an oxymoron? Well, not really, as this was a center for the Arts and Crafts Movement at the beginning of the 20th Century and the principles of the movement have strengthened in recent years. If you don't believe us, try a visit!
