Going down Memory Lane

When my old school friend Wendy asked me to commission a special piece for her Mum’s birthday I was only to happy to oblige, especially having discussed the subject, Happisburgh on the Norfolk coast. This fast disappearing village was where I spent many a happy childhood day on the beach and as a teenager camping on the cliffs (I believe the campsite has all but disappeared now, reclaimed by the sea). The lighthouse thankfully still very much on dry land, keeping ships safe from the cliffs and sand banks and it is this landmark that I turned into a panel.

They were very pleased with it and said, “….it looks fabulous! Hopefully mum will be over the moon…Thanks everso much for doing this, its really special.”

Colaborating with another artist

I have just started a project with another artist on Folksy, the wonderful Sue from Lynwoodcrafts . We have chosen an item from each others shop and are designing our own interpretation of it.

Sue makes wonderful miniature embroidered and woven scenes and landscapes, mostly in the form of brooches and pendants and I adore her work, so I hope I can do it justice! It will be very interesting to see how the soft tactile textures of Sue’s work contrast with the hard glass and metal textures of mine. But a love of the coast and landscape and nature runs through both our work so we do have lots of common ground. Here are the pieces we have chosen from each others shops

I have got as far a working cartoon so far, I cannot start making it till I have been to my glass merchant on Monday as I need more glass!

I intend to use a wonderful dark streaky purple cathederal glass for the dark purple blue sections and another great streaky orange and yellow streaky for the sunset section. I will acid etch the tree silhouettes onto 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.
