Based in the heart of Taunton, County Town of Somerset, our Taunton gallery has a large range of contemporary artists as well as our own glass. Our stock is always changing but we generally have a selection including unique glass jewellery, ceramics, textiles, paintings, prints, wood turning and stone carving. Along with all this there's a large display of Will's work, from his brand new Coasts and Somerset ranges to our ever popular baubles and goblets.
Our gallery in Taunton was the home and headquarters of Shakspeare Glass for over 20 years - it still seems strange to walk in and there is no furnace blasting away in the corner! We made, finished and stored all our glass there, as well as having a gallery space, so it was cramped to say the least... Moving all our glass blowing equipment to Langport has let us use the whole space for displaying our art. and the workshop has made a great gallery with its high ceilings and open space.
