The visitors came and came and the studio was buzzing right through the summer. In terms of glass I experimented with different designs, the Mandela Wheels were still top of my creation list though!
Marbles were another exploration of 2011 which I definately want to explore more in 2012..
And a few mini paperweights....
www.lovelylilybeads.etsy.com was born.
Most of what was posted in this shop had some paw prints on to represent Lily x
Carla Di Francesco at my friends Amanda and David's Studio in Barnstaple: Mango Beads what an inspiration!
So weeks passed and more Mandela Beads came out of the kiln....
And then the thoughts turn to next year and the need for a more 3 dimensional design bubbles to the surface again...
So here we are 2012..I have lots of plans, I have a days class booked with the extremely talented Diane East, I also have a course booked with Anouk Jaspere in Febuary and a couple of other courses in mind for later in the year. I definately want to experiment with Boro Glass and am excited about the year ahead.
Thank you everyone for your support in 2011 and I hope 2012 fufills all yur dreams x
