There’s been a long pause in my posts to this page. Since the Open Studio last year I have moved house and built a new studio. I now have good light, a warm room and running water in the Studio.
I am pleased to be able to say that I can now handle sheet glass safely again, and have begun working in a variety of ways rather than just with frit.
Recent works include two commissioned triptychs, one an abstract piece in tawny and orange tones for a dining room in Cheltenham, and the other a rendering of a view in Cyprus for above a fireplace near Milton Keynes. This is photographed on acrylic stands before posting.
Both of these allowed me to explore the commissioning process, new colours, and the excellent adjustabail hanging system which gives great ease of hanging for the customer.
I’ve also been working on lower fired double sided pieces which have a rough powdery surface texture. This piece is called Moongazer, and I am submitting it to the Bullseye Emerge competition.
