Early this year I received a lovely order for one of these mirrors after reposting the original image from my 2014 Leaf & Seedhead Collection. I jumped at the chance to create the piece again. Occasionally I make pieces that catch my breath, making it difficult to part with them, this glass mirror was one! Safe as to say it went back into production!
In the beautiful summer of 2014 I used to steal away from the workshop shed with my beautiful boy cat Jaffa and we’d roll around together on the grass of the cottage lawn, soaking up the warmth of the sun. The inspiration for the Summer Meadow Collection came to me in those now very precious times. Whatever you’re doing, take a moment to enjoy the wonder of everybody & everything around you x
Sitting finished on top of the kiln is the first pink ‘Summer Meadow’ table lamp!
I love Blackpool, I love my home town. I remember outside the old souvenir shops rows upon rows of spinning display racks full of postcards, old black & white local scenes that had been brightly over colourised. These new pieces take inspiration from those cheerful, historic, photo-chromed, Victorian images.
