Little me in a lovely big exhibition!

I dived into the private view of Gloss Gallery’s new exhibition Coast and Country¬†as I am exhibiting with them! It was heaving with people, which was an excellent start to the show, thankfully a couple of my artist friends arrived so I had some friendly faces to talk to as I am an awful net worker! The gallery staff have done a really good job of curating it and its a great exhibition with loads of very diverse West Country talent, all of them far better known than me! Please pop in and have a look if you are passing that way.

Downs and Ups in my glass adventures

Its been a strange few days in the world of my work. Friday I had to cancel my Easter exhibition I had been planning at the Duchy Centre for Creativity on Dartmoor as it has had to close due to lack of funding, this is a total shame as I had got together 4 other artists and we were all working towards a big Easter show.

This has left me with an unusual hole in my schedule and also a strange moment in my creative process. I was focused on making a good quantity of new work around a Dartmoor theme, suddenly with the exhibition being cancelled it seems unnecessary to spend so much time making leaded panels. For several months now I have been wanting to start glass casting and painting with glass frit. So I have decided to spend a couple of weeks experimenting with glass casting techniques along side some new leaded works.

Today I made my first batches of frit (grinding up scraps of waste glass to a powder or small chunks) and I thought I would celebrate with some new bunting designs, these go in the kiln 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.
