Happy New Year

I would like to wish you a Happy New Year and a healthy one too.

My husband and I have both been ill – only with a nasty cold – over the holiday period, boo hiss! At least we weren’t both at our worst at the same time. However, we’ll be soon back to normal and looking forward to whatever 2018 will bring us.

I was very fortunate to have a fantastic Christmas present – a beginners bead making kit, This includes a torch burner, propane and oxygen supplies and lots of glass and tools. My plan is practice hard making beads over the next few months and ultimately to make glass animals. We’ll see how my plan goes. I hope to teach the technique too but probably in 2019.

In the meantime I will be creating lots of lovely glass pieces in my kiln and am always working on new ideas. I also have several workshops booked and some vouchers for others were given as Christmas presents so there will be lots of people to meet over the next year. I am opening my studio for Oxfordshire Art Weeks in May and will be going to lots of craft fairs in many different venues over the year.

I’ll keep you up to date with my creations and progress with my torch work (lampwork).

Happy 2018.

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
