My collaboration so far……….

I have been hoping to get on with my collaboration with Lynwoodcrafts this week, but other things, like going camping, kept getting in the way.

Firstly I had to make more brooches, 139 to be exact as everywhere is selling out fast and I have been busy with my Florence rooftops panel commission, which I need to finish in time for the couple’s wedding, it is starting to shape up now and I have cemented it today. I still have to clean it up and add some windows to the cathedral, but I will finish it tomorrow.  The numbering is so I can work out where each piece of the jigsaw goes easily and will wash off.

Anyway, I have finally chosen and cut the glass for my version of a Lynwoodcrafts brooch (see below post for details) and the white tree shapes is PVA glue drying. It is the resist for the etching creme I will add tomorrow to etch the silhouettes of trees into the glass. After that I will lead and finish it with paterna to darken the solder joins and buff with stove black.

Sue (Lynwood herself) is camping for the weekend, but we will reveal our finished items at the same time Sunday or Monday. Hers is looking fabulous! I do think she is a very talented super camping mum!

Imagining Florence

I have recently been commissioned to create a panel as a very special wedding present for a couple getting married in September. They both love Italy and are honeymooning there, so the theme is Italian, specifically Tuscany. I adore Italy and as soon as she said Tuscany I had images of  Florentine roof tops in my head! She was excited by this idea too and so I have whittled my drawing down to 2 depictions of the city………..I wonder which one she will choose?


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.
