Autumnal inspiration

autumn leaves, acer

Autumn is such an inspirational season for me; I am fresh back to work after the summer holidays with the kids and I can concentrate on new ideas for the busy winter period.  This year I can’t stop looking at trees, there has been some fabulous colour on the trees this autumn! Luckily I have got to indulge my tree

fetish with a recently finished beech tree commission for the front door of a new build house on a farm called ‘Nut Tree Farm,’ sounds delightful hey?

Autumnal animals were my inspiration for the upcoming Gloss Gallery 20×20 Exhibition, an art exhibition and auction where 20% of the proceeds go to Hospiscare

yellow foxI also have lots of my smaller pieces in the Themla Hulbert Gallery Present Makers 2012 Exhibition, including my owls and some lovely new stained glass flower wreaths. I haven’t had a chance to go see the exhibition myself yet, but when I delivered my stuff there was some great work being dropped off by others, so well worth a visit!

I am juggling a lot of shows and exhibitions in the lead up to Christmas, but I also have a fabulous commission project which I am now starting, I am direct printing from Ivy leaves, which I will then acid etch………more of that another day, just a little photo of the Ivy being arranged on the glass

Another day, another open studio!

My last late night opening today and I am getting a bit cold in my studio writing this; it has also occurred to me how quickly the evenings are drawing in, autumn is really upon us now! But we have had a wonderful day of late summer sunshine and I took some photos of my work in the sparkling sun. I have had a fabulous number of visitors today, to be honest, I have lost count! it is around 20. Some local residents, a lovely friend, a couple of very experienced stained glass artists, a ceramicist and many other interesting people….one of whom came with a fabulous exhibition opportunity which is most exciting (more of that later in the year).

So what have I managed to get done? well a whole lot of glass painting, the kiln is on and should be well into its cycle by now. In there is the much broken last piece of my teasel panel, lots of small houses for tiny winter scenes and a blackberry panels pieces which I am looking forward to making up into a new little autumn piece tomorrow.

I have also completely cemented my mermaid panel and I will clean that up in the morning……more on that tomorrow. So now I am off to back away and shut the studio, ready for another day tomorrow!


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.
