Rolling back the years

​A beautiful little terraced Victorian cottage in Enfield, needed a little nostalgia to compliment it’s historical value. There were two of these The one on the left was badly damaged and my client didn’t like them very much so we opted for me to redesign some new ones. I was delighted to be given the task. Designed, cut out and put together for a much needed improvement. Cemented and sprinkled with whiting, which is a fine chalk powder.. Polished and fitted, this time with a steel glazing bar to avoid damage to the panels when door slammed shut. Now that looks much better..

The Joy & the Mary

Another great class with two smashing ladies Joy & Mary, both total novices, and very excited about the day ahead.. Firstly we chose simple designs and had a practice run at cutting glass. We took it slow and discussed colours, and Mary told me she had always wanted to learn this skill, because she had always admired it over the years.. As the day went by my lovely ladies ‘got the hang of it’ The sun was shining and outside the hens were clucking and there was plenty of tea and biscuits… Mary & Joy are two smashing ladies and I hope they come back again..

Ilona had an abstract in mind which she designed herself, Christina loved the stars, and Sheila threw herself in the deep end and successfully cut out the many pieces of the butterfly .
