About

What is possible with glass the second time round ? lets see shall we :)

I started doing copperfoil ( tiffany) type glasswork more than years ago ( ooo age :) ), I struggled a bit to find my direction with it and was pursuing recycled window glass. especially the old rippled pieces, with heavy textured soldering. This was very satisfying and I was going great guns and had started to sell my pieces locally until, we took our daughter on holiday to Cornwall and went to the ice cream place at the bottom of the Lizard.... The fused glass windows in the buildings Oh my... love at first sight :)
The internal rumblings of wanting a kiln went on for a long time, until a few years ago when my daughter went off to uni, knowing I would need distraction I decided to go self employed and the 'd... it I'm getting one occurred' :)
So now I have gone from power heels to a paint splotched,glass scratched, strangely cold immune, 4 cat, tentative veg growing, solar panel powered, multi recycling fundamentally satisfied interior designer/lighting restorer/used glass recycler.
My odyssey is continually evolving along with my works the sheer technical challenge of working hot glass is so fundamentally absorbing That friends have started to insist on 'resocialising' me form time to time :)
My work in this area, paint I have been playing with for over 30 years, eeek. is in it's infancy and my kiln and hands are still struggling to keep up with the images coming from my imagination.
I hope you will favourite my shop and come with me on my slightly dotty endevours, it's wonderful to share, and while it's lovely if you buy something, to spark someone elses creative urge is truly fulfilling and I love to hear and see other peoples ideas and creations.
I'd love to hear from you. so favourite my shops and come and chat/ask questions
Looking forward to hearing from you
Linda

Frequently asked questions

Getting your order ready for delivery

Some of the items you see on my shop are already cooked and ready to go :) The items that aren't, vary a lot on how many times they need flattening and or bending, and if you would like food safe personalisation that means another go through the kiln which is on average 36 hours. If you can't see the information you want please ask, I have a garden full of bottles and glass waiting for a new loving home :)
Then your piece of art will be packed in cellophane and raffia, plus an enormous amount of polystyrene and cardboard ( recycled as much as possible) and sent to you via a signed for 3-5 day courier, unless you request something else.

Custom and personalised orders

Just ask :) These orders will take a while longer to get ready for delivery, but I can normally estimate the time needed quite well. Sharing someones life event is a special part of this kind of work and one I greatly look forward too :)

Care instructions

My glass work is pretty tough, it's annealed to virtually Pyrex standard. The cats test pieces regularly when they sneak in the workshop :) Treat your items as you would your glass cookware, you may get away with dropping them occasionally but if they land the wrong way..... :)
You can use your glass (unless stated) in the oven to warm your food, for candles, incense sticks, serving dishes use them as spoon rests etc
BUT NEVER ON THE HOB ! most especially if they have large hangers/metal inclusions in, the metal expands much quicker than the glass, and will break the glass quite violently sometimes.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Unless otherwise requested your glass will be wrapped in clear cellophane and tied with raffia or eco string :)

Will every item look the same.

No :) The temperature of the kiln, the weather, each individual piece of glass, each factor changes the final result slightly. 2 bottles that look the same, 1 will turn into a beautifully sculptural piece another will be an oversized table tennis bat. So there's a bit of guesswork involved unless I can test a small portion of the glass first.
If you're at all concerned please ask, I'm more than happy to share :)
