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!
