Painting on Glass

I will the first one to admit that I can’t paint or draw. I love playing with paints – strictly on a painting-by-numbers level, or on a large scale when it involves walls at home. But I had bought some enamels which can be used to paint on glass and I felt obliged to use them…..somehow!

Some time ago I was challenged to create a large keyring with a hare on it. I then discovered the art of tracing using enamels and so now I had a way of using my enamels on glass without too much artistic involvement.

The next challenge I was asked to face was creating the seasons in glass for one of my daughters. She wanted to have a different piece of glass for each season to put on the top of one of her cupboards.

Put all of the above together and I created the following pieces of which I am quite proud.

Autumn

Curve Autumn

Spring

The images are painted on several different surfaces of the glass so there is a slight 3D effect with the painting.

I then went to paint this small piece (it is only about 3inches square)

Fuchsia 2

So, if I am an artist I have decided that I am an Impressionist and that I vaguely make things look like they in life. I will admit to being creative though and that’s the important bit for me. I can create good things, or just a mess but it’s fun and I enjoy myself.

If you’d like to come and try being creative I have several glass workshops I offer, just get in touch.

I have also just published my Summer Brochure if you’d like to have a look. It is full of pictures so a bit slow to load. Do get in touch if you fancy buying anything in the Brochure.

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.
