Since March 2016, I’ve been posting blogs which get sent out to all the lovely Followers of this site and also link with Facebook! Before that, I posted these within the website. Still fun to look at and you might learn something too 😀
March 2016 – It was Grizzly time in Seaton. The official colour for our brave runners this year is a shade of green. I made a choice of coasters including the classic blue, on sale at £15 each and little keyrings (new this year!) at £2.50 for a little souvenir.
May 2015 – whilst on holiday I tried my hand at ‘hot glass’ and made a thing! I’m so proud of it. However I think I’ll stay with what I do; warm glass and kiln work is a lot less stressful. This item is not for sale, just for interest.
The three step process to make a 10″ candle curve for Nanny’s birthday. Pic 1 – having made the design, cut and arrange the glass. Pic 2 – fire in the kiln until just molten, to fuse it as a flat piece. Pic 3 – allow to cool then fire again over or into a shape. Done. Made in the favourite colours of Nanny’s five grandchildren 😀
Hey Diddle Diddle, a nursery picture (12″ x 10″) in lovely rich blues and a beehive door panel (14″ x 12″) using the client’s own design for a beehive
Nice variety to add to the recent commissions, something for twin baby girls, a 50th birthday, and local landmark Colmer’s Hill.
October 2014 – the Dorset Tourism Awards – we had a great night on 16th October at the Tank Museum in Bovington – here are some of the WithaGee Glass Art awards that I very proudly saw presented to the winners. I understand that Dartington Glass made the Devon awards and Jo Downs made them for Cornwall. What illustrious company! 😀

Summer 2014 – inspired by the sunshine and various requests I had fun with these cheerful curves. (1)Girly things: boots, bags n bows, cocktails and cupcakes. (2) Retirement plans: gardening, travelling, sitting in the sun. (3) Seaside fun.(4) Ice creams please! (5) Summer wedding.
September – Lyme Regis Arts Fest. With my glass exhibited in Primary Colours (classy clothing for children) it seemed appropriate to make nursery pictures, bright trains and classy cats.
