Felt Tips

March 19, 2014

kaw

I just realised I haven’t put anything up for a while. But I have since the last blog been using felt tips. I bought some for a charity do I helped to organise to keep kids entertained, they weren’t interested, but I got left with lots of felts. Ooooh the colours, oooo felts that change colour with application of a magic felt… (dribble, drool etc.). I also founds some posh felts at Oxfam for a knock down price, so now I’ve got hundreds of them, and Grayson Perry made a passing remark about getting his felts out to help him think about new work, and if it’s good enough for him…anyway there’s more but here’s a few – I haven’t bought a birthday card in a while now!

autumn garden 2013

Come on! This really is my Mum and Dad’s garden, and all the Autumn colour has come together at the same time, isn’t it glorious? My mum is a planting genius and my dad does the hard labour and dangerous tree surgery – great job eh?! Nothing to do with me I might add, I just wanted everyone to see it. Please leave a nice comment if you like it, they’ll be well chuffed.

Sail Away

sailingThis is a little mosaic about 3″ x 3″ for a frame, like Green Water. However I have someone in mind for this, so not for sale. Fiddly, but worth it.

 

Patchwork Red/Green

Item For Sale

redpatchThis is a small 6″ x 6″ trivet, but it looks bigger, something to do with the random size of the tiles I guess. This one is £35, I’d be happy to make you one in completely different colours of course. Please get in touch if you’d like this one, I’ll add P&P to the price.

 

Thinstripe

thinstripeThis was sold at a fair, it’s trickier than it looks to get the thin stripes cut, then stuck in a way that doesn’t allow grout to leak under the glass – my top tip would be look at your thin stripe in profile and see if the glass is wavy, if it is, apply at least twice as much glue, or break the stripe where it bends to get two flat bits, much better. I will make more of these, nice for left over bits of glass.

 

White Tulips

This trivet/wall piece contains two unusual things, I’ve used big pieces of glass that is beautifully swirly in it’s own right – I couldn’t break that up too much, so I allowed it to suggest the form of tulip leaves – click on the image to enlarge it if you want to see detail of that. It’s also got pieces of that pinky lilac colour, which costs a fortune BTW, and is a new colour for me to play with. There’s a lot of iridescence not picked up by the flat on view so another image below shows this more clearly. This piece is 8″ x 8″ , please do get in touch if you’d like me to make you something flowery.

Autumn Leaf

December 22, 2011

kaw

Glass mosaic of a leaf, inspiration below. As with other iridescent mosaics it looks completly different in different lights, so here’s two versions anyway. It was a challenging subject, the leaf was a beautiful colour, and very intricate and subtle. I had to use sixths of a tile to feel like I’d got the scale right, so it looks fairly randomly organised.  I bought some yacht varnish for the back as it’s going to be hung up outside.  I explained to the man in the sailing fandangle shop that I didn’t have a yacht, I think that may have been unnecessary on reflection.
