Welcome To Yellow Dog Glass
Welcome to Yellow Dog Glass. We are one of the leading contemporary dichroic glass jewellery makers in the UK. We use dichroic glass, silver and advanced fusing techniques to create stunning jewellery suitable for all ages and occasions at affordable prices.
In our family run studio we design and create unique pieces of fused and dichroic glass to make into jewellery and unique items to decorate your home. We are situated on edge of the Mendip Hills overlooking the beautiful Chew Valley Lake, just south of Bristol. Every piece of fused glass jewellery and glass art we sell is handmade here in our studio, using Bullseye fusing glass and Sandberg Dichroic glass.
Our aim is to produce unique, exclusive and affordable pieces. We continuously produce new styles and colour-ways, and every piece is individually photographed for the online shop. What you see is what you get - with dichroic glass, no two pieces are ever identical.
Yellow Dog Glass now has a beautiful studio at The Walled Garden in Wrington. The plan for the studio is to be open as a retail space for all the wonderful Arts Trails that happen in Somerset, and also to make the studio available as a childrens party space, also offering felt making, jewellery and glass making classes for adults and children. We have also installed a Vitriograph kiln - you can't imaging the excitement of pulling hot glass out of an even hotter flowerpot...unless you are a glass addict like me! Josh continues to make beautiful marbles and pendants which are on display in the studio. Our opening hours may not be entirely regular to begin with, so bear with us and check the website for information. You can call me on 07970 265433 if you are making a special trip as I only live 20 minutes away. We have the Adjustabail range here for you to look at - save postage by collecting them from the studio. We have the amazing Ethicurean Restaurant here on the site - just a whisper away from a Michelin star - and their capucinno is delicious!
Dichroic Glass Jewellery
I have been making fused glass since 2000, and have seen the popularity of dichroic fused glass jewellery increase hugely. Many people will be familiar with its sparkle and unique ability to change colour as the light angle alters. The dichroic we use most is made by 'Coatings by Sandberg (CBS)', who produce the widest range of colours, textures and patterns, and associated glass products which make the jewellery so interesting and varied. There is no limit to the number of different designs and colour variations that can be produced. No other type of glass catches the light and exhibits colour change in such a dramatic way as dichroic glass.
I teach classes at Warm Glass UK in Wrington, near Bristol. The studio is wonderful, well equipped and with groups of eight students in each class. Please visit their website for details. Bespoke one-to-one days can also be arranged. Please contact me for details.
