The glass slipper has been made by John Ditchfield, nationally renowned local glass blower based in Lancashire. His company Glasform was established over 25 years ago and specialises in producing bespoke antiques of the future as well as architectural glass work. Glasform specialises in the manufacturing of Handmade Art Glass, which entails the moulding and shaping of molten glass.
