Remember Space Dust?

Remember that funny stuff that used to pop in your mouth? Space Dust! Don't know why, it must be the retro colours, but when this dish came out of the kiln, it was what I immediately thought of.

Would You Like....

to win one of my pendants?

Last week was the annual "Flame Off" exhibition at Towcester, organised by Tuffnells Glass.  Each year the team at Tuffnells, as well as organising a superb show, also raise money for Air Ambulance - I'd offered one of my pendants up for auction/raffle, but due to circumstances, didn't make it to the show so it was overlooked.

So I have decided to still put the pendant up for raffle - you can join in by clicking here: Just Giving Page - each donation of £1 will give you one entry into the prize draw.  It will close on 28th April, and will be drawn on Sunday 29th April.  Here is what you could win:

The pendant is made from jade green and iridised glass, is about 1cm x 6cm and on a sterling silver bail, threaded on to a hand-dyed silk ribbon and has a handmade lampwork bead as a slide adjuster - good luck!

New Design - hump-backed bowls?

Hmm - tried another mosaic dish recently, but things didn't quite go according to plan...that said, I rather like the result.  Just not sure what to do with it.  Bumpy Bowl? Turn it over and it is a dish, or a round candle holder?  Hang it from the ceilin and make a lampshade?  What would you do with it?
