Four small feature re-cycled glass panes wanted

IMAGENAMEHEREI am looking around for someone interested in making four glass panes from re-cycled bottle glass.

I have designed a fun feature for the HoBB entrance and have finished the stonework and oak window frame ready. Each of the four panes have air bubbles trapped in them, are clear to frosted to bottle green but of different design.

As the lower panes are being melted together from parts of carefully prepared green wine bottles the ‘melt’ needs to stop just before the thick circular bottle bottoms become indistinct and fuse with the main clearer sheet glass. The whole ‘look’ should be that of ‘recycled’ glass so the origin is not lost.

This project would suit a student with access to kiln, keen to work with an interior designer. If you have any wickedly wonderful thoughts on how to get this kind of feel into a feature, contact me please.

We are busy celebrating 10 years of visualising and illustration – any excuse!

We are busy celebrating 10 years of visualising and illustration - any excuse!We were travelling north and we suddenly felt like celebrating, so stopped off in Bakewell, had a slap up breakfast in a cafe, resisted buying their Bakewell Tarts but sat sipping tea and covering our two paper serviettes with doodles of dancing eggs and cutlery.

It’s risky to leave any piece of paper close-by as it beckons the creative hand and teases out the inventive threads of ink to dance the way of the mind.

Often a ‘doodle’ will do the trick when communicating ideas and concepts and I believe that ‘drawing’ is as much an International Language as English. It could be a more International Language if everyone could draw or simply doodle out their thoughts to each other.

If you see ‘drawing’ as a skill that should be taught as a language, I would love to hear from you. Say “hi” offline or online.

If you know of a centre to empower children with this international skill, send the details to me and I will put up a link to their work.
