Fused Glass Earrings and Pendants, Suncatchers, coasters and worktop savers

 All sorts of goodies from the beast of Exmoor!

The best fun during lockdown has been using my wonderful kiln….the Beast of Exmoor!

I bought this with the intention of running rainy day classes on fused glass but covid stopped play so I have been having a great time experimenting in fused glass and making all sorts of different things…the possibilities are endless!

You can create up to 4 coasters, or a mixture of coasters, earrings and a pendant

All materials and firing included in the cost of the course.

£120 per person

door window

Brighten up your Kitchen or Hallway with a bespoke fused glass door window

This window was my first commission, for the door of a forge in the North York Moors, so of course I had to visit for inspiration!

Living on Exmoor I love using the bright colours and ever changing views across the Moors, but I am happy to work from photos if you have a favourite view that you wish to have expressed in glass.

Costs from £150 depending on the size of the finished piece.The window is robust and frost resistant but needs to be installed with a buffer to protect against slamming…..do phone to discuss.

Unusual presents for the men in your life

Copper and aluminium “inclusions” are fun. This picture was for my seafaring stepdad, who made the wooden stand for it. Such a nifty present for those men who have everything…I guarantee they won’t have one of these! Price from £20 to £50, depending on size and complexity of design…..drop me an email and we can chuck some ideas around!

Worktop Savers ,coasters and glass tiles

I can create glass pictures from 10cm square to 36cm square in the beast, larger items are doable but I would need to rent a larger kiln.

Coasters come with little “bumpers” to make them non slip and allow a little light through to show off their colours.

Worktop savers are heat resistant and likewise held off your worksurface with small feet, great to keep by the stove.

I can even make a bespoke personalised feeding station for your dog or cat to stop the water bowl slopping onto the floor, much easier to keep clean!

fused glass birthday card

Fused glass “greeting cards”

The big daisies and rudbeckia in our garden inspired this 21st birthday card for my niece. She now uses it as a coaster but my Mother uses hers as a suncatcher propped on the windowsill! I can provide little sticky feet to protect the table for a coaster, or a hanging string, and any flower or season can be requested. Price £15 for a 10cm x 10cm square “card”. Personalisation with Happy Birthday and/or a name is £5.00 extra

Glass Christmas robin

Fused Glass Suncatchers, tree decorations

What about a robin suncatcher for the window latch or to hang on the christmas tree? We have such a tame little fellow in the garden I have really enjoyed watching him as he busily sorts through  my weeding efforts! Price £10 each bird, I will be producing some blue tits and wrens soon.

We have a great selection of tree decorations, xmas candle dishes and so on which I will be promoting again in October. Back into storage until then!
