Welcome to my blog


Living and working in the Isles of Scilly is inspirational.... but also has its difficulties!

Getting supplies of large sheets of coloured glass intact from the mainland can be a bit of a challenge, especially in the winter months when the only supply vessel is held up because of rough weather.

I thought people might be interested in the life of an island-dwelling artisan.

I make full sized stained glass windows to commission in the winter months (see commissions page for examples) but I thought it would be fun to just do tiny, hanging leaded panels to hang in existing windows. I have used really narrow lead "cames" and I don't need to seal around the lead with putty, as it doesn't need to be weatherproof.

As we are presently in Covid 19 lockdown, and probably will be for some time, I have the chance to play and experiment!
