I am working on some gorgeous projects at the moment. One is a feature window, 3 metres high, of a Provençal scene. Lavender fields and vineyards with a little farmhouse nestling in the valley. I have so enjoyed designing and making this and now want to live in this fantasy landscape!
I have also just finished leading two front door panels.
A very traditional style and they will transform my customers hall. (see right) The range of my projects keeps me on my toes as no two are the same.
Just the kind of daily work I love.
I have been designing a really excellent mixture of work lately, from painted Tudor roses to abstract stained glass based on the Fabian Window. Beautiful and elegant panels inspired by the work of Baille Scott and some diamond quarry windows with coloured glasses much like the windows in The Ivy restaurant.
Windows at "The Ivy" London
If you're thinking of commissioning some bespoke stained glass, I will be delighted to help. All my stained glass and leaded lights are made by hand, by me in my lovely workshop in The Surrey Hills and as you can see I am able to design and make in a wealth of styles. You are most welcome to visit but please phone first as I am sometimes out on site.
New courses will be available soon, I know there are lots of you waiting for new dates and I am working on them, honestly!
My new, bigger (yay), kiln is now up and working so after years of waiting I can now fire my larger projects here instead of carting them about in the car. I am very grateful for the help I have been given by one of my students who has kindly come to the rescue on several occasions which his big kiln. You know who you are!
Surrey Artists Open Studios is happening in June and I am taking part in Redhill again at Aileens studio. Do drop in if you have time.
Thanks for reading.....
