beach huts and lilies

Oh it has been a busy old week! I am still making my large shop order, it is epic!

But I have squeezed in the time to make these 2 items, which are now available in my folksy shop

The beach huts are made from recycled stained glass and each pot stand/trivet is a unique little piece of table art.

The lily is one of my most popular designs and I have cut it from a single piece of beautiful smokey streaky glass that is finished with an iridescent sheen.

Shiney, finished and ready to go!

At last I have finished my commission for New Lodge and all 7 windows are buffed, signed and ready to go to their new home tomorrow, fingers crossed they will slip into their intended holes and look stunning for 100 years to come! Next week I have a landscape commission to fit to a double glazed unit and a restoration, so lots of new pics and posts soon!

Work in Progress, cutting and leading

I am trying to document every stage of my current commission and now the final designs have been chosen and final drawings done I have been getting on with making them. I am doing the 2 side windows first, which are made up of 2 halves (so 4 panels in total)

Here are some photos moving from cutting, to leading, to the soldered panels, waiting to be cemented. The cutting has been made more accurate and easier for me on this commission as I have just brought my self my first grinder, which allows me to get a much better finish to my glass cuts and gives me more ability to manipulate the glass.


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.
