Celebration Window Installed

Steve and Wynn’s Window ……

Made for a house in Cumbria, this bold and beautiful window based on crewel embroidery, the garden and the Celebration of Life  was installed at the end of April, much to the delight of myself and the client. A full write-up including a short film will soon be available to see.

 

Back to the blog…and putting a tree on the tube

WP_20160712_17_41_27_ProI’ve not blogged for ages,…if I’m honest it’s because I’ve been having a dalliance with Facebook and the wondrous Instagram with regards to work photos …..and they are very good for immediacy but I’ve realized that the website is the best place to collate and reflect on finished work and be a gallery for these things as they are completed as, inevitably,  I get drawn into other things as time moves on and forget to draw a line under each project.

So I sit down, at the start of this new year of 2018, to dust off my website and recollect the things that have happened since I last passed this way.  I shall be attempting to stock the shelves with in-date items, throw away a few mouldy ones and bring myself up to the present and integrate the wonderful worlds of social media to make things a bit more streamlined. Hoorah!!  So for now, as I have just been talking to someone about the joys of commissioning a stained glass piece as a gift, here is a little you tube film I put together tonight about a panel I was commissioned to do in 2016 that never really got documented………

First Flowering Prints

FF 10 of 11. 2015 (3)Inspired by Jacobean Crewel, a style of embroidery developed in the 17th century that was influenced by exotic flora and fauna found on imported Indian chintzes, ‘First Flowering’ is a limited edition of 11 recently completed prints.

An image of each individual print can be found on a new page in my gallery called ‘First Flowering Prints’ ,  so anyone who is interested in them can have a good look!!
