Jonah and the Whale

This is Steve the Gardener’s favourite story and I owed it to him to capture it in glass.

(Steve chops up all my firewood for me – he is a very good man).

We chatted….and I drew. (Steve was quite particular about the details and was sure of the part of the story he wanted me to portray).


I selected some lovely special bits of handmade glass. My aim was to keep the glass shapes simple and let the painting tell the story….. I loved doing this story-telling by painting.


Pop it in the kiln – oooooh, just fits!

A bit of ‘forging’ to make the curlicue waves……..


And then finish it off with a bit of wood collected from the bottom of the sea!

    Amazing! Hope you get more of that kind of thing.

    And, I sent the link of your etsy page to my cousin Liz, who has plenty of money and is always buying gifts! She loves it and says she will order a bird or too. I assured her not to worry about there being only 1in stock! Have you had much interest so far?

      Thanks Jo….loved doing it…and yes, more would be fab!!

      Have had my first sale on Etsy and regular views ever since, so fingers crossed. (And 1 in stock is a good thing – it means you are getting something very unique!!…Choosing which ONE is the tricky thing). x
