First finished photographic printed stained glass panel!

After much experimenting with a special printable transfer paper on which I print out photographic images I have finished this piece, Sunset, Teasels and sea. The transfers are carefully floated onto the cut glass pieces and heated to a high temperature in the kiln to bond with the glass and then I lead the panel together as usual. The glass is given a grainy, slightly mat side from contact with the kiln shelf at high temperatures and the sepia of the printed image combine to give a really nice retro, old photograph atmosphere. There will be more of this kind of thing soon, but for now its for sale in my Folksy shop

The photograph used here I took on Branscombe Beach, Devon at sunset looking out to sea and the panel is framed in a specially made recycled wooden frame.

Inspiration on the Cornish coast

We have just returned from a glorious camping trip to Maker Heights campsite, near Cawsands in Cornwall. It was a fabulous campsite, just a toilet block and a field where campfires were permitted, perfect! The kids had a wonderful time playing in the trees and walking down to the beach on the coast path and us adults played with fire and had a relaxing time. The site is an area of outstanding natural beauty and was used as various military garrassons until recently, due to its unparalelled view of the coastline and Devonport ship yard across the river in Plymouth.  They have various enterprises underway on the site, artist studios, local businesses and annual music festivals; an interesting place well worth a visit.

The coastline there was amazing and we had some great days on the beach in Cawsands. I intend to use this coastline as inspiration for some new pieces (I have lots of ideas already), unfortunately I dont have the time right now as I have 3 commissions on the go and lots of shops to restock………watch this space for some future work coming out of this lovely trip!

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.
