Autumn and winter pieces

I have been busily working on some seasonal designs, from autumn leaves and dandelion clocks to winter scenes and tiny glass icicles for the Christmas tree, all of these will be finding their way into my Folksy shop over the next few days. I have included painted detail to the panels and the icicles are all made using recycled glass. Oh, and my autumn leaves are selling wonderfully at present.

I have finally finished my shop order for a lovely new shop in Barnstaple, Devon, called Atelier; which is the baby of the very talented Tracey Benton, or NiftyandThrifty as she is also known. They have a blog with information on how the restoration has been going, it is very lucky for me that it has been taking longer than they expected as I keep selling all the stock intended for them before it gets there! But finally and at last it is all boxed up and ready to go!

I have also just made a custom order for a Spinnakers customer who really wanted a stained glass surf board mobile, who am I to refuse such a challenge?  I will be taking them some of my mixed media works next week, to compliment the stained glass works I sell there.  Not sure there is a market for surf board stained glass in general, what do you think?

Getting better photos

I have spent the morning rephotographing some things in the bright spring sunshine we have been enjoying and I am getting better at product photography I think! My bunting is looking much better in the new shots……..

all of these items are for sale in my Folksy shop, its open 24-7!

BIG Mobiles

I have finally finished one of 2 large mobiles, entitled ‘Where are all the fish?’ this one is intended for the Indside TRAIL  Exhibition starting on 17th March at the Ariel Centre, Totnes.  The idea of the mobile is to highlight overfishing; the boats look and move like a shoal of fish waiting for the first catch of the day, but where are all the fish? The beauty of the reflections of all the boats on a white wall is even better than I had hoped; I don’t think these photos really do it justice, hopefully I will get some better ones when the exhibition opens. I am busy making a sister piece to this for Otterton Mill to add to my pieces in their  ‘Going Green’  exhibition, which runs till after Easter.

I make a wide range of boat mobiles, all shapes and sizes and all made entirely from waste and recycled glass, please contact me if you would like me to make one or take a peak on my Folksy shop. They make excellent gifts and are a very affordable way to have a little piece of art in your home.

Selling in new shops and new things on Folksy

Stained glass and driftwood mobile on folksy

I’ve been busy making things and some of my items are now for sale in Leaf Street, Magdalen Rd, Exeter and Busy Lizzies, Popplefords Barn, Newton Poppleford.  Both shops showcase a lovely range of local handmade products and I am pleased my items are being sold in such  great settings.

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.
