Spring (it’s nearly here)

I have been quiet for a while for several reasons. My hubby and I have both had Covid, nothing worse than a heavy cold thank goodness. But I have been playing in the studio a lot but have only just finished some exciting new designs.

I decided to make lots of flower type pieces this year as I am going to a flower show or two. So, here are some characters to decorate the indoor type of flower pot. They are about 8inches tall and would stick in the compost around your chosen plant.

Then the real playing started.

This is made by fusing stringers onto a clear base, cutting the pieces into strips, turning alternate ones round, fusing with a clear glass cover and, voila…

The next fun things start in the same way, with stringers on a clear base, with stacked clear squares on top. Once fired, the stacked clear pieces distort the stringers.

Mini versions are available too. I decided to slump the first piece into a bowl rather than it hanging on a wall as I thought it might be too boggley!

If you fancy having a go at playing with glass (gnomes of your won or a boggly piece or something completely different) do get in touch using the contact button below or email me: cosycreativecrafts@hotmail.com. I am now taking bookings for April onwards as March is a tad busy.

Craft Fairs: here are a few dates to be getting on with –

Runcorn Shipping Village – 24th to 26th March

Highbury Hall, Birmingham – 10th April

Tatton Park – 7th, 8th May

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.
