New engraving

The Zest exhibition is underway but next in line is the Guild of Glass Engravers national exhibition and details of what is intended to be exhibited are due in this it has been a bit of a panic (as usual) to decide and complete , photograph etc. All done now.
All pieces submitted to that exhibition have to first be accepted by a panel, so there are no guarantees that any of mine will be on show, in the mean time I cannot sell them therefore they will not be available until 15th June. I am submitting 3 pieces, one of them being a brand new one:
"E - motion" Cumbria Crystal colour overlay bowl 17 x 9cm hand engraved and sandblasted.

Work remains quite overwhelming, hence I have been officially "fully booked" for April since the end of March. This means that I work at a safe pace and as soon as I have caught up enough to be comfortable I change my status. This I announce on my website home page.

Amoungst several large orders including Christening goblets, a window panel , a large golf table of prizes and some hospital awards, I am also working on another decanter triptyque with another mega yacht, fantastic to work on!!

I am rushing to town to drop off some junior county football awards and then back hard at it! At least it has been trying to warm up (weatherwise) and I have been able to unwind on the golf course again, at LAST!!

It is almost impossible to remember how tragic a place this world is when one is playing golf. ~Robert Lynd

Glass Engraving Exhibition, London, Zest Contemporary Glass Gallery.

Last week I attended the opening of "Deep Surface" engraved glass exhibition at Zest Contemporary Glass Gallery, London, where I am exhibiting a few of my pieces. One of them "Endangered" has already Sold. All pieces remain on show until the end of the exhibition on 5th May.

A message to all women out there:

Inside of you is a smart, powerful, dynamic, capable, self-confident, alive, alert, fabulous woman. Let her come out and play. The world is waiting for you. - Louise L Hay

Glass Engraving lessons at Darsham village.

Capturing one of the moments of delight!

I had a lovely day at Darsham once again and here are some pictures capturing the fun! Well done everyone involved, it is an awsome event!
I have another mega yacht triptyque commission to do and am in the middle of a Dartington Crystal decanter covered once again in an English woodland and lined up also is a 40cm owl on a branch for an internal window, 2 woodland goblets, 1 woodland covered honey pot (definitely the theme of the moment!) , a set of wine glasses for the launching of a yacht (normal size yacht this time) and a few other bits and pieces, like watch backings etc....hence I am fully booked for April already apart from very simple lettering. I also am hoping to finish a piece for the Guild of Glass Engravers exhibition.....No Easter holiday for me!

Happy Easter everyone. have a quiet reflection rather than a tummy full of chocolate!
