We are delighted to have collaborated with the FT on their Christmas video this year, which has resulted in the creation of the special limited edition bauble you can see below! The striking pink and white design was created by the FT Weekend team with the help of our resident artist Bruce Marks. Using the original bauble as inspiration, the London Glassblowing team set about refining and perfecting the design, resulting in this limited run of free-blown baubles.
Each bauble was beautifully hand crafted at Peter Layton's studio near London Bridge - one of the oldest hot-glass studios in Europe.
