Some Eye Candy

I’ve not posted much lately – because I’ve been rather busy!

I went straight from the residency project to some work with Arts at The Heart, Kirk Hallam, and have been working with community groups and a nursing home.  Got lots of project photos to show you for those.

At the same time, I’ve been involved in a project up at Creswell Village, working with a lovely group of ladies that I’ve got to know well over the last few months.  I’ve been teaching them some glass skills whilst building up ideas for a piece of community art.  That project is all done now, well my part has anyway, and it culminated in a glass tapestry made by the group members which will be on permanent display in the Big Local office.

But I am not going to show you that!

I finally got a chance to get back to making a bit of my own work in the kiln, and I was so pleased that the kiln fairies were kind to me, even though I’ve been working them very hard.

This beauty came out the other day, it’ll be destined for one of the galleries I stock, but I thought you might like to see it.  I was so pleased with everything about it – the subtle sheen, the gentle variations in the glass, as well as the shadows that the clear strip cast.
