Welcome to our website.
We are living in strange times, and we count ourselves fortunate to be able to continue communicating with friends and family, even if we can't give them a physical hug.
The on-line store is up and running, and we are stocking it with more goodies each month. You can see some of our latest listings in the shop at the head of this page - just click to go directy to the shop.
You can also find us here on Facebook.
Do you wear your heart on your sleeve?
We hang ours in the garden.
These lovely rainbow hearts have proved very popular with our customers (and with us).
The heart with the stitches proves that there is no such thing as waste glass - the clear glass broke during refining the shape. So we made a feature of the crack and used white stringer to create the stitches.
The response to our Support the NHS Suncatchers has been overwhelming and to date we have raised over £100 for NHS Charities Together.
We now have 4 items in our Charities Collection, with the sale of each one contributing to our chosen charity. Click the link to enter our shop (social distancing observed of course) and see what's on offer - if any of the items are not showing, we're out of stock but will be making more soon.
Thank you to everyone who has ordered any of the Charity items, to those who have shared our Facebook postings, and most of all, to those in the 'Front Line', whatever part they play
These little gems are not only beautiful, but are raising funds for our NHS. Find them in our Folksy shop in the Charity Goodies category.
There are 3 main designs & colourways, between 7 and 9 cm long, and around 2 cm wide. All made from hand-cut art glass which is fused together and then drilled to take a colourful ribbon.
Each suncatcher costs £5.00, which includes a donation of £2.50 to NHS Charities Together, and we will pick up the tab for postage & packing. A great way of saying Thank You to some of our Front-Line supporters.
With Valentines Day just around the corner I've produced some Hearts for our loved ones.
Each of the smaller hearts are approximately 4 cm high and the same across - this does vary as all the glass is hand-cut and I'm not that good at precise measurements.
These next hearts are slightly larger than the ones above. The first is 5cm in each direction and the second, green one is 7cm x 6cm. These hearts are £4.00 each.
The next pair of hearts are special, and are made from clear glass with glass 'confetti' sprinkled on. They are approximately 8cm in each direction, and are £5.00 each.
Finally we have a broken heart. Fortunately is has been stiched together and it lives on. It's approximately 7cm by 9 cm and can be yours for £5.00
If we told you that...
See if you can work it out for yourself. If you come to one of the craft events we're showing at, I'll try and explain how we got these squares of glass linked together in a chain.
Each square is made up from 4 separate strips of coloured glass. These are arranged in the kiln in a specific manner and raised to around 800C. The 4 pieces of each square bcome one solid piece of glass, linked to its neighbours.
With five of these squares linked together and hung from a stainless steel chain, these make an unusual hanger.
Due to the way in which we hand-cut each individual piece of glass, and the way the glass moves in the kiln, no two squares hangers will every be the same.
