Summertime

June was a funny month…not much happening, not much in the way of sales, or inspiration come to that!  Maybe the awful weather had something to do with it.  The one bright spot was Di East’s Birthday bash at Studio 19 and the course with Astrid Reidel that preceeded it.  I only managed the last day, but that was about making 3-D flower murrini, very taxing, but the results were quite beautiful.  Here it is on a modest little bead called Martha:

 

July is turning out to be a more productive month.  I’ve been asked by Diane Woodhall of the Soda Lime Times to write an article on silver glass for the August edition, which has been fun but quite challenging, and involved some more photography which has kept me busy.

Also I bit the bullet and went on a course with Claudia Trimbur-Pagel about precise stringer control, based on the assumption that as it was about one of my weak points it could do me nothing but good.  It was a great lesson and I feel I’ve benefited from it.  Here are some of my practice pieces, some of which were good enough to put up for sale:

 

And finally…the muse is back.  Here are three lentils,  with Ekho silver glass which I’ve just recently re-discovered.

…I was pleased with these and one sold immediately…….and the sun is coming back to Britain…..so, roll on Summer!
