Dull but important stuff

Yep, that's what I am doing right now, hence the blog quietness. I am sorting out all my books/tax at the mo. Ugh. Want to get it out of the way asap so I can enjoy Xmas and not dwell on receipts/invoices!

At the mo, Handmade Heaven is travelling with my friend Tash of TishTash. She's showcasing my work at private events, along with her handmade creations. I'm very grateful to have her as a friend. She's the perfect saleswoman for my glassware :)

Suction hooks for window hangers

Colourful commissions

This weekend just gone saw me in the studio making some commission work. I'm sure you've seen the bright and colourful 'Rainbow Lattice' handmade fused glass latticeware bowl on the website homepage? Well, I had an order in for one of these bowls. To be honest, they're a joy to make, especially in these vibrant colourways. The bowl, as with most of my work, is a teeny bit different to the original - every item is unique! I took more pics than these (see flickr) but here's the full and detailed views.

I also made a pair of coasters for a customer who's bought from me before in the popular 'Teal and Chocolate Blocks' design.
