As an artist and fond user of lead crystal Gaffer Glass, I thought it only right I visit the company who dedicate their time to the manufacturing process. It is Gaffer Glass's dedication to quality control which make it possible for glass artists (whether blowing or casting) to make our work. We often produce work, without a single thought of the alchemy involved, before the glass is wrapped and posted to our studios.
I was fortunate enough to meet up with John Croucher, one of the two Directors of Gaffer Glass based in Grey Lynn, in Auckland New Zealand. John courteously gave me a tour of the manufacturing studios, along with an informative insight into the world of glass and compatibility issues.
Thank you John.
