Packaging up some exclusive designs for a new Scottish Gallery.

For several months now I have been working on some exclusive designs for a new gallery opening in Kintyre, Argyll, Scotland called Coastal Design and at last its all done, packed and ready to travel to the other end of the country. The gallery will be opening next month and they have commissioned a landscape design from me, in various sizes and colour ways depicting Campbell Town Loch and Davaar Island. The different colour ways reflect the ever changing light and I hope I have captured something of the atmosphere of the coastline there. The panels are made using traditional leading techniques, I have acid etched grasses and rocks into the glass and most of the glass used is recycled and reclaimed waste glass

Lots of other goodies have been packaged up for the gallery too, including; large leaves in autumn colours, boat mobiles, beach huts and hearts so they have a mixture of my leaded and copper foiled pieces…..its a long way to go, I have my fingers crossed they will arrive safely!

Devon Open Studios, past the half way point!

I am well into my second week of Devon Open Studios and nearly 50 people have been to visit, which is great. Its a bit strange not knowing when people are coming and then several people arriving at once, but that is part of the fun of it too!
I have also been able to get on with lots of work, having nearly finished my Scotland window and I have new commissions to get on with at the weekend, so lots of interesting processes to watch including a restoration.
My gazebo gallery has stood up to the weather so far and I have sold a few items too.
I am open until 6pm on Sunday 19th, so still a few days to come and visit!

Off to the shops

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?


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.
