This large panel has just been installed to further obscure a large bathroom window; I make lots of windows for bathrooms and toilets and it is a great place to put a stained glass window as it adds privacy and interest to small rooms. At just over a metre square its a striking feature which is visible through the bathroom into the upstairs landing. The window has been fixed in front of the existing textured double glazed panel and really livens up the space. All the fish are made with iridescent water glass and have been hand painted and kiln fired. The panel is leaded using traditional techniques

I have been very busy this month experimenting and working on new ideas! This has made me very productive in the workshop, but not very good at writing my blog! Anyway………
I am learning to print on glass using various techniques. Firstly I have been making some lino cuts and direct printing
onto glass this way. The results have been varied and though I very much like the effect I am finding getting the right consistency of the paint a bit hit and miss, however, using a roller not a ponce or a brush to apply the paint has helped greatly and I have made a new range of Valentines items as a result, available on my website . I am also experimenting with firing photograph images onto glass (coming out of the kiln today!) and I have 2 new series of work coming along nicely in my studio. So lots to tell you about in the next few weeks!
