Pieces for Recycling Exhibition, Otterton Mill, 6 March 2010

I have been very busy getting a collection of  my Junk Plankton together for the Recycling Exhibition starting at Otterton Mill on 6th March. This is my biggest exhibition so far and I am hoping to complete 12 pieces for it, I have done 9 so far, so hopefully I will reach my target in time! They are made from waste glass, broken and discarded costume jewelery and other found items. They are framed in frames from charity shops and recycling centres spray painted black. The only aspect of them which is not recycled is the adhesive holding them all together. Even the spray paint is left over from another project.

This is a free exhibition in a beautiful gallery with a lovely cafe and excellent walks to the nearby coast, so it is a lovely family day out. Please pop along if you are in the area

Junk Plankton

I have recently finished my first piece for the TRAIL Inside exhibition  to be held in the Ariel Centre, Totnes, Devon.

This is a mixed media piece made up of 8 panels depicting different types of plankton, some close ups of the centre of them. They are entirely made from waste glass, broken and discarded costume jewelery and found objects. Basically rubbish!

Next I am preparing a mobile made up of 45 boats made from waste glass, the exhibition starts on 15th March, so I had better get my skates on!

Spinnakers Gallery

I am very pleased to announce that I have a range of my panels, mobiles, hearts and brooches for sale in Spinnakers Art Gallery, Crediton High Street, Credition, Devon. This lovely gallery stocks a wide range of local and international fair trade gifts and works of art and I am very pleased to be working with the owner Michelle.

I have included some photos of my work available to buy at Spinnakers. www.spinnakersgallery.co.uk/


I am a stained glass artist working in Exeter and a busy mum of 2; trying to carve a path through the tide of washing and children's toys that stands between me and making beautiful things.

  • Got a bit more painting done today, I am quite pleased with my stag. I don't have a good track record with livestock :-D 2 weeks ago
  • I wonder how many days this will take to paint? I am guessing 4. Day 2 done, about 3rd painted, but they have been the easy bits so far. 2 weeks ago
