Announcement    Fused glass decorations designed and made in my garden studio in Cheshire. My best selling item is a hanging blue tit, we all love their perky character don't we?

Glass hanging and standing birds make wonderful gifts for nature lovers, so many of us feed our birds and enjoy watching them.

I make many other types of glass decoration which could bring a bit of colour to a window frame, they work equally well against a wall or on a tree.

Graphic designer, nature lover and glass artist.

I am a trained graphic designer and worked in computer games for 35 years, as an artist, a team leader, project manager and eventually head of studio.
Once I was managing creatives (which I loved) I realised I desperately missed the challenge of getting my ideas into a 3D form. I was actually a bear with a sore head and didn't know why, so I started doing night classes to 'find something' for my idle hands!
On a stained glass evening class the tutor took away some glass I'd cut and fired it in his kiln, I was totally hooked when I saw the softened edges and rich colours overlaid! I can still remember that eye opening moment.

I have created in glass for about 18 years and after being made redundant 6 years ago I decided to concentrate on glass full time and see where it could take me. I now work from an old summerhouse in the garden and my commute is 14 paces :)

I start an idea with research and drawings, as I was taught, before iterating to a point I'm happy with. The final piece of glass has to have my feeling about the subject matter held within it.

I am inspired by my home coast of the Wirral Peninsula but since we moved my inspiration has come from the woodland garden and wildlife that surround my studio. In fact the birds started because I became aware of the activity outside my studio window. I was watching a wren pop about on the gravel next to me, but he wasn't aware I was there, I became captivated. That little wren started my birdy journey!

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

I currently don't offer gift wrapping, but hanging garden birds come wrapped in pretty nature inspired tissue paper and are mailed in flat 'book wrap' packaging.

3D items like birds on logs, have packing made to fit each item to support the bird. These are bulkier so do not fit through a letter box.

If you buy multiple items they will be individually wrapped with tissue paper and bubble wrap, and arrive in a box.

Delivery

The garden birds are already made and held in stock, so just need packing up. Items listed as single items are in stock and the photograph will be the exact item you will receive. UK items go out first or second class quite often before my processing deadline.

I usually go to the post office twice a week. If you need an item earlier or later contact me and I am sure I will be able to work around your dates.

Europe and USA items will go out on my processing date, delivery times can be hard to predict. USA can take 6 weeks currently.
