A Little Give Away


The winner of the icicles is Suzie W – please email me your address so I can post your prize to you.

Thank you to everyone who took entered. I’ve been very touched by your lovely comments.



Things have been very quiet on the dyeing front for the last few weeks as I’m still struggling to get over a chest infection. So the combination of an unheated workshop and some damp haven’t seemed like the best of plans.

What this has meant is that I’ve had more time at home, and that’s given me some extra time to spend melting glass.


Lampwork icicles made with borosilicate glass – that’s pretty much the same stuff that any pyrex cookware you have is made form. The longest icicles are about 9cm long, and the shortest about 6cm long.

The six icicles shown above are looking for a new home – if you’d like them please leave a comment and I’ll pick a winner at 1800 on Monday 15th December. I’m happy to post these anywhere in the world, but they might be decorations for Christmas 2015 if you live outside the UK.

Comments need to be approved, so your comment won’t show instantly.

If you’re interested in more of my lampwork you can find beads and poppers in the shop
