A Green and Pleasant Land

I've been working on this glass panel landscape for weeks now, adding more detail and firing again, it's hard to know when to step away and consider it finished.  It isn't a picture of anywhere specific, I didn't work from a photo but a picture in my head of peaceful rolling hills - somewhere calm and tranquil. I'm sure there are many places around the world just like this but think my picture memories are probably from childhood holidays in Ireland.  Sometimes we all need to get to a green and pleasant place, even if its just a picture in our heads.

A Vintage Fair

So much of  current design trend is vintage influenced so I thought I'd give a vintage fair a go. I had a stall last weekend at A Gloriously Vintage Day Out at Mount Ephraim, near Faversham, Kent   There were some fabulous stalls and exhibits throughout the house and garden and despite the forecast, the weather stayed fine all day and an excellent day was had by all.
