Glass in the garden!

17th June 2017

It was great to have Viv Keel in the garden today. Viv placed these beautiful lead crystal pieces here and I am absolutely thrilled with them. They are called Rock, Sand, Glass and are a celebration of what is essentially the same material.   They are stunning with the light shining behind them.

This piece is called Doo Wah Diddy ( from the song) and I love the way Helen Sinclair captures human emotion so precisely in all of her work. This girl is strutting without a care in the world and she has the presence of a carefree empowered person. “She really blows my mind”

These woven pheasants by Juliette Hamilton look simply lovely strutting beneath the leaf laden beech tree.   Before I framed them in long grass.   It was lovely to sit outside this morning and have my first cup of tea with this view.

Garden adornment.

It was lovely to have Lucy Coyne working in the garden today. Lucy is also a jeweller and her large pieces have such beautifully observed and detailed elements within them. Thank you Lucy. I have been making slips.   Carefully Inlaying this coloured slip was the perfect gentle job for such a hot day.
