Our first limited Edition of 2021

March 4, 2021

Winters Gold,

Our first limited edition of 2021 celebrates the skeleton seed heads of cow parsley.

Beautiful, enduring, sculptural… they remain as tall structures in the hedgerows and verges, long after their soft frothy flowers are gone.

In the final warm rays of a winters day, they catch the low sun and bask in shades of gold.

Cow parsley has large umbrellas filled with seeds, a valuable food for our native birds, and many a small child has enjoyed the dried hollow stems as a pea shooter.

We are on the cusp of spring, and in just a few weeks the first flowers of the new season will surround these forms with new blooms. In the mean time we will take the time to enjoy the beauty of winters gold.

Made to order and available in two sizes, this bowl is a warm, transparent gold with a gold lip wrap.

New to the Website

Our classic ball vase now in French Grey. It’s a simple vase that lets the flowers be the star, easy to dress with a posey from the garden or a single bloom from the florist.

When the vase is filled with water, it’s weighty and stable as well as easy to clean.

Find both sizes in the monochrome section of our online shop.

 

Limited Edition 2021 – Winters Gold

February 17, 2021

Our first design, Winters Gold,  is almost ready to present. We are looking late next week all being well.

It’s a study of the seed heads of the Cow Parsley, in low winter sunshine.

It’s a delicate intricate design, which I hope captures the architectural nature of the frames left behind after the fluffy summer flowers are long gone.

Please join our mailing list if you’d like to be the first to see the new bowl.

 

Out Walking in Rosedale

February 12, 2021

So today, I went out to enjoy the powdery snow and icicles. Had to wait sometime for the snow to stop falling and the light to return…. but it was worth it.

Love Dukka Bridge and not seen icicles like this for a good 10 years, it was a cool -12 last night and it’s been pretty chilly for quite sometime…. due to start warming up soon.

Really enjoyed this bit of winter.

Glassmaking

December 9, 2020

I am feeling like Christmas has come early as we have a new camera for the studio. This beauty allows me to capture moments of making and the process.

I am enjoying myself very much. Hope you enjoy the snaps too.

 

Blackbirds and the Howgate Wonders

December 9, 2020

Our view from the studio. Blackbirds in the orchard opposite, making the most of the apples left for them. I’m keeping an eye out for a flock of waxwings, which sometimes arrive, make lots of noise and feast.

In the mean time, the blackbirds are a joy to watch. Bon apetite.
