Christmas at Christmas

The year is progressing at a terribly fast rate. I have a granddaughter who was born in January and is now 9 months old. How does that happen?

I have been working hard to prepare my goodies for Christmas. I showed my Christmas trees in August – I have now made about 100 and I’m hoping they’ll all be different!

However, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a lampwork creature and this year it’s Father Christmas’s. There are short, fat ones, tall, slim ones just as in real life. Although I use the same red glass rods for all of them each rod softens differently and the glass flows better in some than others. The Santa’s are made like beads so they have a hole through their middles and are hung with coloured thread. I have made about 40 but am working hard to make enough for the season. With 10 more craft fairs to attend before Christmas I need enough supplies to last.

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.
