A Warm Open Studios Welcome!

Open Studios is in full swing! In the 3 days we have been open to the public we have had 20 visitors, which I am pretty pleased with! So, what is there to see?

Firstly and most importantly I am delighted to have my friend and ceramicist Ulrika-Igraine Munoz-Alarcon exhibiting and working in my garden gazebo. Not only is she heavily pregnant, but putting up with the less than ideal weather conditions (its a bit breezy in there!) with great grace! Ulrika makes wonderful vessels and jewellery from paper clay and creates delicate and striking pieces incorporating her own graphic design decals which she fires onto her work and is busy making new pieces whilst with us.

I have spruced up my workshop with a nice coat of white paint and have hung a lot of work in my studio! I have also put lots of my bigger pieces out in the garden and weather permitting (they dont like high winds) there is a shoal of  fused glass fish and a lot of glass raindrops hanging around. I have various projects on the go for the Open Studios period, making recycled fused glass tiles for my kitchen (limited success so far), a lovely little restoration for my friend Marion Andrews (who also participating in Open Studios with her fascinating seashell workshop) and 2 panels to make for my own home. The first of these panels is a long promised window for my little girl’s bedroom, they want mermaids, so that is what I am making them, giving me a chance to further develop my glass painting skills, which are still pretty limited! Anyway, day one, the glass is cut, tomorrow acid etching and painting the pieces. Please feel free to come and see how I get on with all these projects, or keep checking back here to see how I am doing!

We are open 11 am -6pm Until 18th September 2011. Open till 8pm Thursdays and closed to remind our children who we are on Mondays and Tuesdays

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.
