Christmas already?


What a weekend in Shrewsbury at Shrewsbury Christmas. Eight inches of snow giving the Quarry Park a truly Alpine feel.
A huge thank you to all the wonderful visitors and for all the lovely comments about my glass and interest in my workshops; hope to see you soon in 2018.
Unfortunately I had to take Sunday as a ‘snow day’ as my road into town wasn’t passable and that’s assuming I’d have been able to get down the drive!  So, my sincere apologies if you missed me on the Sunday.

Next weekend, 16th & 17th December, I am opening up a small exhibition/shop in my shed!  Peope have often asked if they can come and have a look at my glass at the studio and I didn’t have any room for a display area.
I do now! My hobby/garden shed has been repurposed. Whitewashed inside, with new blinds and rug from Ikea (you’ve got to love Ikea), it is now a cosy & permanent display space for my glass.

I will be open 11am to 4pm both days and then in the evenings, 6 – 7.30pm, on alternate days; Tuesday 19th, Thursday 21st and Saturday 23rd. I’d love to see you if you are out this way – mulled wine or a hot drink to tempt you too!
Plus, it will always be at the ready to open as long as I am about, just give me a callFind me on Google maps.


For a very ‘on trend’ present why not give a Gift Voucher for a fusing workshop.  They are perfect for a crafty friend who likes to experience something new. You can buy to the full workshop value or simply purchase a voucher to the value you prefer and the recipient can choose to put it towards a workshop or a piece of unique studio glass. They are easy to buy and even easier to give or post.


A few pieces of my work including ‘Chicanery’ shown left, are at The Trumpet Corner Gallery and Tearooms until Christmas, and I will be there on Saturday 23rd December ‘Meet the Maker’ 10am – 4pm.




And if our paths don’t cross, I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and perhaps more importantly a Peaceful and Plentiful 2018.




Herefordshire Art Week – h.Art

Hi all,

Great News!

As one of the artists at the delightful Trumpet Corner Tearoom, Gallery & Garden, I am ‘open’ with Herefordshire Art Week this year for the first time.  I’m especially looking forward to it as my recent joint exhibition at Trumpet was well received and sold well.

h.Art runs from Saturday 9th September to Sunday 17th September and features almost 300 artists at over 100 venues; some single artists and some, like Trumpet Corner, with multiple artists. We have 13 artists, 2D and 3D across a variety of media, demonstrations and ‘meet the maker’.

You may well find that piece of artwork to fall in love with!

And not only that – Trumpet Corner serves delicious home-cooked food, great coffee and speciality teas.

All in all, well worth a visit and a lovely afternoon (or morning) out.


It’s keeping me busy – here’s a snapshot of a new piece called Chicanery
and my ‘technicolour dream sheets’ for more new works.

Later this month I’ll be back at Malvern for the Malvern Autumn Show, with the Worcestershire Guild Contemporary Craft.
Then I guess its onwards and upwards to Christmas; Rudolph & friends are now in training!

Hope to see you


P.S. 21st October Fusing Taster Workshop added.
Coming Soon: More 2017 Autumn Winter workshop dates.
PLUS a new 2 day fusing workshop with overnight stay
in our beautiful Rea Valley in the Shropshire Hills!




Spring is most definitely in the air.

Hi there,

Today (15th March) was a gorgeous spring day, warm enough to sit outside as several visitors to The Trumpet Corner Gallery will attest.

Stunning display of Leucojums; blooming their hearts out in a sunny border; my recommendation.



I was there today, taking down my glass from the Atmospheric Aesthetics Exhibition in the Garden Gallery – and delighted I had less to pack away than I put in 6 weeks ago!  I’m looking forward to another exhibition with different artists, a little later in the year.  In the meantime there will always be a limited range of my glass available in the Tearoom Gallery.


For me, Spring is the best of seasons, everything is so fresh and the spring flower colours; clear yellows, soft blues and fresh greens, not to mention the palest of pinks and purest of whites, just sing out in the sharp clear light.



And I’m busy preparing to start the ‘show’ season, kicking off with a trade show in April – BCTF (Harrogate).  Then closer to home, I will be at Malvern for the RHS Spring Festival for the first time this year.  Looking forward to that; not least due to my other passion – plants.

See you soonest
