Hi all. Just thought I would let you have a look at some of the things I have been working on recently. The glassware, Moody Mare mugs and wedding themed greetings cards will be shortly winging their respective way to a lovely little shop called Studio61 Gallery Boutique in Derbyshire(http://www.karinagoodman.com/) Please do have a look at this lovely little shop full of British handmade, hand crafted items. Karina is also a gem :O)
Two large vases painted in neutral white/cream. The one on the lhs is glass paint, very fine, with several layers whilst the one on the rhs is ceramic paint which is thicker to work with. Both based on a dogrose design.
On another note, one of my pieces has been used for a book photo shoot by the very lovely Lyndsey James (http://www.lyndsey-james.co.uk/) and I proudly load the picture below (copyright lyndseyjames). Please do take a look at Lyndsey's lovely photographs on her website and the book would be most helpful to those artists and craftworker wishing to photograph their products for max effect. I know I shall be obtaining it and will look forward to attending one of her courses soon to learn how to approach the difficult issue of photographing my glassware.
Inspired by this photograph and setting I had a go myself, a couple of the more successful photos are below!
To end on rather a sad note, I lost one of my many pets over the weekend. PepsiMax was a rip olde age for a duck being 10 plus in years. Expected but always a sad occassion. He is the bigger Aylesbury duck on the rhs of the picture below. His friend now has some other ducks to keep him company and I will post a picture of them soon. I now find that I spend many a coffee break sat in the duck pen watching them interact, hours of fun and amusement!
