I work with both lead and copperfoil in making stained glass for domestic doors and windows. Recently I have been developing free-standing designs that work more as sculptures for both indoors and in outdoor/gardens spaces. Coloured and textured glass is so very attractive and I play with decorative ideas in making smaller items such as candelholders, hangings and standing birds.
In 2012 I designed a piece for St Mary de Haura church art exhibition based on the theme of Celebration, which I hope shows the joy and fun of the Jubilee parties and also the Olympics, where communities came together to celebrate and to wonder at the athletes skilled performances and the varied achievements of the human body. I am currently running day-workshops for anyone wanting to have a go at learning how to make a piece of either leaded or copperfoil glass, helping to raise money to support Eagle House in Sri Lanka www.eddigoeast
