Older Posts – before March 2016

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 ūüėÄ

March 2016 РIt 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 ūüėÄ

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! ūüėÄ

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 РLyme 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.
