With warm weather and long days, my workshop doors are almost permanently wide open to the sound of birds and to the scent of honeysuckle just outside my window. It would be easy to relax and enjoy the undiluted pleasures of living in such a lovely part of the world, but I am far too excited by the task of working with the new designs that I have planned for the coming months! I have been making dichroic glass shapes for use in my work, a material which has the elusive iridescence of opal. In some lights it flashes blue like moonstone, yet in another light the colour might be green or red, always changing. I am due to go on a course to hone my skills soon and am looking forward to exploring the possibilities that this exciting material can offer.
The Contemporary Craft Fair in Bovey Tracey this June was a delightful event! Seeing so many old friends again and making new contacts was a truly heartwarming experience. The standard of work on display was extremely high and I found a number of new makers whose work I will be following keenly. My only selling events later this year will both be in London as I have not been offered a place at Crux Craft Fair this year. If you are on my mailing list, you will receive reminders of these events shortly before they take place. If you are not on my list, you can join by visiting my Contact page.
Last year I took a break from The Goldsmiths Fair in London but I am delighted to be back again this Autumn. It is a fabulous event, as I hardly need remind those who have visited, and I hope that you will be able to come and see me there.
