A panel for my house and one for Exeter Cathedral!

I have recently finally finished a panel for our bedroom internal window (above the Dandelion clocks, stained glass paneldoor) and I am very pleased with the finished design; which is of highly stylised dandelion clocks.  I acid etched some detail on to the circular clocks and I enjoyed using a limited palette of colours.  I used a gorgeous piece of opaque sage and cream glass,  mouth blown yellow glass, seeded clear glass and light blue cathedral.

All of our upstairs windows have these lights above the doors and I am slowly working my way around the house!

 

On the 25th November at Exeter Cathedral there is a performance of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and local contemporary artists have been invited to create a visual response to one of the pieces of the movement (sorry if the terminology is wrong I am not a classical buff!) to be exhibited along side the performance.

I have chosen The Bogatyr Gates (movement no 10). I initially just did some free sketches listening to the music and assigned different colours to the different phrases and instruments of the music. I decided to use the lines of musical staves as the background for my piece and I think I have managed to capture a sense of movement through the central yellow flashes of glass. I have used a wide range of glasses and textures in the piece, all of the glass used is recycled waste stained glass. I am looking forward to seeing everyone elses response to the music!

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.
