Master glassmaker Paul Miller learned his trade from a group of top European glassmakers at King’s Lynn Glass in England. It was there that he was able to hone his skills, thus creating a foundation for the reputation for excellence that Langham Glass holds today. When Wedgwood bought King’s Lynn Glass in 1969, Paul designed many of the animals and paperweights that are still sought after by collectors. Looking to create his own business, he chose the village of Langham for its farmhouses and lively charm, and in 1979 Langham Glass was born.
To this day, the craft of creating the finest crystal glass remains the same. Master glassmakers mold and shape molten crystal using a wet hand pad, and these craftsmen are rare – few apprentices actually become masters. The level of dedication and beauty of expression shown in each handmade piece serves to further the survival of glassmaking, one of mankind’s oldest and most fascinating crafts.
