Open Studios Day 4

Day 4, second blog post, wonky I know! Anyway yesterday I blogged about how I had cut all the glass for the mermaid window, today I have painted on the details and got it all in the kiln. I use kiln fired glass paints which come in a powder form, you mix them with gum arabic and water to make a paste and then get going. Its a devil to work as it dries to a powder very quickly and then can not be over painted or touched up, you need to make smooth fluid lines from the off and have a very clear design to work from and have beautifully prepared glass and design….needless to say I am just at the start of this adventure, but I am getting the hang of it slowly! The window details are heavily inspired by one of my children’s favourite books, Jinny Ghost (by Jane Ray and Berlie Doherty). A strange beautiful story about a ghost who transforms nightmares into exciting adventure dreams. The kids love the story, I love the illustration!

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.
