Forest

Item For Sale

forestThis was a 6″ x 6″ experiment, all these shapes are offcuts from another mosaic – you can have £5 off it if you can spot which one! The glass was a bit wavy (i.e. not perfectly flat) so the grout has made a frilly pattern round the edge of some of the pieces. I thought it looked a lot like a fur tree forest? If you like it it’s £25 plus P&P, please get in touch.

Green Water

SOLD

greenwater frameMy first experiment into a framed small but detailed mosaic. Nice frame eh? Thanks Professor Ikea, nice one. The red fish are in glistening green glass water, the square is lined with thin silver foil before applying the glass. I see this one gracing a leafy conservatory somewhere. But I will not complain if you’d like to have it in your bathroom. It’s all good.  Now SOLD.

6″ x 6″, it’s kind of arresting, this pattern, but it could be hand cut glass squares of multi colours, not just two, I will experiment next time I’m making something multi-coloured. I guess I could actually make a chess board if anyone’s interested. This trivet is £35, please get in touch if you’d like it.

 

Juliette Stripe

juliette2

 

A birthday commission for Juliette. Blues and greens together, I’ll be honest, is not something I’d have done unprompted, but that was the brief and I love the result. With the addition of a tiny bit of purple-blue and iridescent blue/purple the colours seem very happy together, so much so that I’m calling this set of colours ‘Juliette’ from now on. The trivet/wall piece is 8″ x 8″.

This little special one is made from a scrap of an old victorian stained glass panel, when I made it I had no idea that such scraps were a rarity, but I’ve never found one since in the pile of bits at Lead and Light where I get my glass. (What a shop BTW, I could spend hours in there…I have spent hours in there.) I made it to sell, but I can’t bear to part with it – I’m never going to win business person of the year. Sigh.

Well, these have been popular, I sold two and gave the others as presents for Christmas. Tunnocks, for those who eschew chocolate, are Scotland’s finest naughty tea time treats, but better than that have the least fiddled with packaging of all confectionery, ideal for retro kookiness in the kitchen. These are ‘Teacake’ and ‘Caramel’ wrappers under cut glass. Yum, both of them, honestly, get some. If you’d like a Tunnocks based trivet for a present for someone please let me know, 6″ x 6″ £40 and larger ones upwards of that.

Item For Salecrythmirror

Click on this image (as with all the images on the site) to see the full version, but please don’t judge me on the messiness of my workroom – I must take a better picture of this mirror. It’s all cut glass, and the edge to edge diameter is 16″, it’s a good size. The edges are lined with lead strip for neatness. It’s for sale at £200 if you’d like it. It’s pretty and in subtle tones, with lots of detail. If you buy it and you live in London Uk I’ll bring it to you to save on postage. Please contact me if you’re interested.

King William

kaw

This is smaller than usual (4″ x 6″) and I made it for my uncle. It’s a statue of King William of Orange that graces the Town Square where he lives. It’s mirror and iridescent blue glass and I’m quite surprised given the experimental approach that you can tell it’s chap on a horse in silhouette, from below – in case you were wondering.

Happy Birthday Uncle R

Irises

October 10, 2012

kaw

The sun was out for a bit when I photographed this 10″ x 10″ trivet. This was another commission, and the birthday recipient I was told loves irises and the colour purple. Well, say no more. I looked at Tiffany for inspiration for this one and though that was a bit un-nerving due to his immense mosaic talent (and immense mosaics – we’re talking whole walls), I took a deep breath and balanced large pieces  of glass with small detail and purples with yellow greens to bring out the colours. You can put a hot pan on it, but you know – I sort of hope this one ends up on a wall.
