Nicolas et Lucille Pinquier have their glass blowing premises in Poncé-sur-le-Loir, just 20 minutes away from us. They are usually open all week (except Monday and Sunday morning) and during the afternoon you can watch Nicolas and his team blowing glass.
I've always been fascinated with the idea of glass blowing, so to be able to see it happening just a couple of feet in front of me was a real treat. The glass pieces themselves are wonderful, practical, decorative and unique depending on the piece you fall for.
One of the most rewarding trips you can make from Les Bouts de Rallé!
You can find out more about Nicolas and Lucille on their website.
PS. We intend to go back (yet again) with a camera next time and with Nicolas et Lucille's permission we'll have a few photographs to show you.
