Glass Portfolio

In progress at the moment are another version of the dragonfly panel (in a pink colourway – a commission), a clumps panel, another work concerning a hive, a pheasant and a blue goddess.

Below is a selection of the pieces I’ve completed.

Painted Black Arches moth on the light box.

This painted chicken was inspired by the hens I keep & looks particularly like Hermione the hen.

These were a selection of the small suncatchers I produced for this years artweeks

This mermaid panel is a design by Jody & Delina Sheppard. I chose purples as the main colour for the mermaid and fish and black baroque glass to add texture to the hair.

This is a small suncatcher completed at a painted glass workshop. It’s called ‘waggle dance’.

My first attempt at painted glass under the tutorage of Nicola Kantorowicz. More about the process here

After completing the dragonfly panel I wanted to try some copper foiled dragonflies to hang up without putting them into lead

so I made one green one blue and a purple one.

Dragonflies Panel – this design was adapted from a quilting pattern, the design is quite intricate with the dragonflies being done in copper foil and them being dropped into the surrounding lead. More about that here.
