Colaborating with another artist

I have just started a project with another artist on Folksy, the wonderful Sue from Lynwoodcrafts . We have chosen an item from each others shop and are designing our own interpretation of it.

Sue makes wonderful miniature embroidered and woven scenes and landscapes, mostly in the form of brooches and pendants and I adore her work, so I hope I can do it justice! It will be very interesting to see how the soft tactile textures of Sue’s work contrast with the hard glass and metal textures of mine. But a love of the coast and landscape and nature runs through both our work so we do have lots of common ground. Here are the pieces we have chosen from each others shops

I have got as far a working cartoon so far, I cannot start making it till I have been to my glass merchant on Monday as I need more glass!

I intend to use a wonderful dark streaky purple cathederal glass for the dark purple blue sections and another great streaky orange and yellow streaky for the sunset section. I will acid etch the tree silhouettes onto the glass

Imagining Florence

I have recently been commissioned to create a panel as a very special wedding present for a couple getting married in September. They both love Italy and are honeymooning there, so the theme is Italian, specifically Tuscany. I adore Italy and as soon as she said Tuscany I had images of  Florentine roof tops in my head! She was excited by this idea too and so I have whittled my drawing down to 2 depictions of the city………..I wonder which one she will choose?


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.
