From snow to rainforest

Took our annual pilgrimage to Eden Project yesterday, it is only an hour or so drive from our house and we like to go in January with our old friends for a spot of ice skating and to heat up in the tropical bio domes!

Yesterday I needed to take LOTS of photos of olive trees in the Mediterranean Dome for a new commission I am working on for Olive Tree Therapies  a gorgeous new beauty salon in Exeter (more of that another day) but I also did lots of snapping in the other, bigger dome.

Snowy day on the Moors

I love it when it snows and always get very excited; as do my children! We watched the rest of the country get snow….indeed it did snow in Exeter, but it didn’t settle. So by this morning we were desperate to find some snow.

We didn’t have to look far, Castle Drogo  was a winter wonderland today and we had a great time sledging in the deserted peace of the magical castle on Dartmoor.

The light was really unusual today. I often find this in the South West, there is something in the damp misty air which transfuses light in a unique, sometimes eerie way and I got to take lots of photos, which to me is the modern day sketch book. I take lots of photos and refer back to them often.

Autumn and winter pieces

I have been busily working on some seasonal designs, from autumn leaves and dandelion clocks to winter scenes and tiny glass icicles for the Christmas tree, all of these will be finding their way into my Folksy shop over the next few days. I have included painted detail to the panels and the icicles are all made using recycled glass. Oh, and my autumn leaves are selling wonderfully at present.

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.
