Richard Golding, founder of Okra Glass in 1979, opened his glass studio in Shenton Station at the end of the Battlefield preserved railway line in 2010. At the Station you find Richard`s state of the art studio and gallery where you can sit, watch him make glass and buy unique Station Glass Creations.
Richard`s glass is highly collectible and features in museums, galleries and private collections around the world. Renowned for his glass recipes and designs, use of iridescence, reduction, colour and surface decoration, Richard is seen by many as one of the top studio glassmakers working today.
Take a look at the A Station to a Glasshouse pages for information on how we turned the empty shell of the Station into a living, breathing, hot glass studio and gallery.
