Pieces for ‘Landscapes’ at Otterton Mill


After a mammoth effort I got all my pieces for my latest exhibition to the gallery 4 hours before they started hanging, which is cutting it a bit fine! Otterton Mill is a lovely gallery space, craft shop, working Mill and award winning restaurant near Budleigh Salterton in Devon and this is my second exhibition with them, almost exactly a year a part. The works here are all inspired by local landscapes, from Poltimore House to Sidmouth beachand incorporate found objects, etching and acid etching, recycled glass. All the pieces are made using traditional stained glass leading techniques and some of them are framed in reclaimed tulip tree frames, commissioned from a local carpenter, which look lovely. I have 10 large pieces and several smaller items for exhibition and sale in the gallery, along side 2 other artists, the wonderful Robert Jennison and local artist Amy Cummins our work seems to compliment each other very well. I am glad I work in glass as it would be very daunting to be exhibiting paintings with such talented artists!

Anyway, below is a slide show of my pieces and the exhibition is free and runs from 5th March till 25th April, so please have a look if you are in the area.

Mosaic workshop

I had a great night last night teaching a stained glass mosaic workshop at Otterton Mill. Everyone seemed to embrace my way of working with found pieces of glass and they all managed to complete their piece in the time given (which was a relief!) I think they had fun. They all made really lovely pot stands and here are some photos of the evening.

Pieces for Recycling Exhibition, Otterton Mill, 6 March 2010

I have been very busy getting a collection of  my Junk Plankton together for the Recycling Exhibition starting at Otterton Mill on 6th March. This is my biggest exhibition so far and I am hoping to complete 12 pieces for it, I have done 9 so far, so hopefully I will reach my target in time! They are made from waste glass, broken and discarded costume jewelery and other found items. They are framed in frames from charity shops and recycling centres spray painted black. The only aspect of them which is not recycled is the adhesive holding them all together. Even the spray paint is left over from another project.

This is a free exhibition in a beautiful gallery with a lovely cafe and excellent walks to the nearby coast, so it is a lovely family day out. Please pop along if you are in the area

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.
