Art / Hedgehogs
« on: September 18, 2012, 06:17:56 PM »
I wanted to share images of my new glass hedgehogs, with screen-printed designs.

I've been up all night editing pics, so please excuse any mistakes!

Hi there, apologies if this if the wrong place to put this.... 

I'm a glass artist up in Edinburgh and one of the things I work with is water-jet cutting glass into animals (so far I've done hares and foxes) with my next creature being a hedgehog.

My project is to install several hundred glass hedgehogs into the Manchester Craft & Design Centre.  This is a huge amount of work and cost so I have launched a page on a crowdfunding website to raise the money needed to cut the glass.

I'm looking for help with this and in exchange, every pledge from GBP£5 upwards can choose from a number of rewards, including their own glass hedgehog sent to them (International shipping is included in the price!)

The deadline to raise the money is only in 10 days time and if the goal isn't reached then no money will be taken from backers, no rewards will be given and the installation will be greatly reduced in size.

Please check it out and share with any interested parties -

Many thanks,

Hi guys, been a bit quiet lately due to being manic busy in the studio, which is good!

...but am gonna try and get on here more!  I've had 6 weeks of just craziness really,  I've been teaching, doing a trade show, making new work, oh and had to find a new place to live after landlady announced she was selling my apartment!

So all in all, have just not been able to cope with more than keeping my own website updated and Facebook pages etc.

So sorry have been quiet, I don't except anyone's missed me too much, maybe just the random glass I bring to the forum every so

Edinburgh Police Boxes, I've done a dozen of these in different colour blends using some new casting crystal in soe scrummy colours, my photos really don't do these justice.  I've got the first one up on Etsy too -

Space Invaders, I'm not sure what these are gonna be yet but they are quite fun and quick to make so might be pin badges or magnets..dunno yet!

Right, that's enough from me for now!

Art / Monkeys!
« on: April 12, 2010, 11:12:27 AM »
I'm sooo busy and I shouldn't be messing about but I just had to make these as a little distraction!

They are made from transparent red glass using the Freeze N Fuse technique that i'm teaching this weekend to 15 glass-thirsty students!  I haven't cleaned them up yet so the edges are quite rough and I have no idea what I'm going to do with them except back them with something because they are so thin and fragile.

But I'm sure something will come from this mold, maybe a cast cage vase of monkeys.... who knows!
