Botanically Inspired Stained Glass

DURING APRIL AND MAY I'M DONATING £1 FROM EVERY ORDER TO SCRAPSTORE LEEDS FUNDRAISER TO SEND OUT CREATIVE PLAY BOXES TO CHILDREN, THEY ARE BEEN DISTRIBUTED THROUGH FOODBANKS AND LOCAL COMMUNITY NETWORKS.

My wildflowers & grasses giveaway the happiness I feel when connected to nature, they are my appreciation of the honest beauty of the natural world.

The concept behind my work is "we are so genetically programmed to connect with nature that we feel satisfaction when we strip seeds from a stalk of grass".

I've chosen plants which create strong joyful images for me, swathes of golden barley at harvest time, formal borders of fragrant lavender crowded with bees, wild flower meadows rich in red clover, all symbolising the unique beauty of the English Countryside.

I work from botanical samples and photographs collected whilst out walking my dog in the Yorkshire countryside. I find simple natural objects both inspirational and a mindful contrast to the busy world around me.

Unique

Connected to nature

I have a unique background, I've been teaching Horticulture for 10 years and have degrees in Environmental Science and Civil Engineering, these seem to naturally unite through my fascination for presenting glass to light through different botanical forms, patterns and structures.

I love to play with the limitations of my materials and techniques, each piece of my work is individual, rich in its handmade character.

A sustainable approach to my work is reflected in my holistic choices of materials, resources and working methods, I'm mindful in my packaging choices and always personalise with little hand drawn shapes and images.

    "The stained glass was a beautiful colour. I ordered it as a gift for my mum who is shielding during the pandemic. I delivered it with her shopping and it really brightened her day. A really pretty little thing."

    "Wow, what beautiful flowers. They are even better in reality than the photos. I bought the flowers for my mum for mother's day and they make such a unique, special, and lasting gift. The seller is incredible. They included a little vard thanking me for my purchase and a pack of sunflower seeds! The flowers arrived quickly and were carefully wrapped to avoid damage. Thank you!"
