Travelling is wonderful and having the opportunity to learn, create and participate in classes not available at home raises the experience to another level. While on my 1/2 gap year to Europe in 2015 I participated in a masterclass in Newburgh just north of Edinburgh with American artist Larry Thomas.
One of the pleasures of creativity is experimenting with a material - in this case glass - in a new way.
I love having a birdbath (or 3) in my garden and during the summer months it comes alive when surrounded by the colour in the garden.
Loving glass as I do I found myself in possession of many small pieces left over from leadlight adventures and decided to see how it could be re-purposed to add that splash of colour to the winter garden...
