Bamboo Chimes: Behind the Design

We have been making kiln worked wind and breeze chimes for many years and wanted to add a flameworked chime to our selection. The design of this chime was inspired by some of our travels to Asia where bamboo is seen everywhere including many areas of calmness and serenity.

Hanscomb Glass and Bullfrog Power

There is no doubt that the process of making our wonderful creations requires  energy. To bend, twist and blow ornaments we use propane gas. To slump, fuse, and anneal glass work we fire electric kilns to some pretty high temperatures. While constructing our modern stained glass windows and panels, electricity is there to power the soldering irons...and to keep everyone safe while working and creating we run ventilation and extraction fans.

35 year anniversary - Hanscomb Glass

March 1st marks 35 years that we have lived and worked in Elora. The studio was originally located in Fergus, ON and known as Boney Fingers Art Glass, but we changed the name by 1988 to “Hanscomb Glass Studio”. Neil always believed that he would be a glass artist until the end of his days and didn’t want to answer the phone as Boney Fingers, officially he said he would never be tired of his own name.
