What a cow!

Finally finished my Dairy Crest commission to highlight the waste produced from plastic milk containers, which is being used to promote their new Jugit system which creates 75% less waste than conventional milk cartons.

There will be better photos when it is in position in Morrisions Taunton, but at 2.5m long it takes up most of our garden! Which is

currently a building site, so excuse the rubble behind it! Anyway, it is being picked up next week to graze in its new supermarket pasture, but until the big launch here are some sneaky peak shots of my plastic cow!

It is entirely made from milk cartons, from the horns to the tail! Held together with wire, glue and painted with spray paint and some old enamel paint from the garage.  I hope it stays up, helps deliver the message and makes people smile!

My house is full of milk cartons…….but I have finished my boat


I have 310 2 ltr milk cartons stuck together in groups of 3 wide and 5 long and I have stuck together the tricky bits of the letter K and M for my milk sculpture. There are literally bottles everywhere and if you try and move them before the glue is totally dry they fall apart, its a nightmare! But I have made good headway, I have made all the parts of the letters and tomorrow I will stick all the parts of the letters together. I then need to spray paint them and fashion a cow head and tail out of the remaining few milk cartons………..I have till the 27th July and it looks like it is going up in the Taunton Branch of Morrisons,  I know nothing more!

Really got down to work this week and in every available second I was sticking glass on my boat sculpture, grouting it and then doing it all again to the sails. Its a large structure and it took bloomin ages! But I think it is going to look fab. I now just need to make the kaleidoscope that you look through to have a fun view of the boat, mmmmmmmmmmm it has to be installed by Saturday this week, better get on with it. Oh, and you cant see the whole thing till it goes up at the weekend, on the left is the sails being  under way and me  grouting the bath tub.


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.
