Summertime Blues

Wow, what a summer we are having! It is hot, hot, hot!

I made more bird baths to take to the Bishops Palace Garden Festival this year and some more Kingfishers and some Swallows and some Goldfinches. (The birds will be in the next post)

(stained glass, iridescent glass, glass rod, millefiori, German cabochons, gold leaf glass, glass nuggets, blue turtle bead)

As usual the bird baths are hand formed using wire and cement mixtures. (If you already have some mosaic experience you could come and learn how to make one of these on my mosaic sculpture course this weekend coming)

In this hot summer the birds need water. I have seen Goldfinches, Bullfinches and cats drinking from the bird pools! I’ve only managed to get photos of the cats!

    I have a box of mosaic tiles bought – ahem – some years ago and never quite managed to start a project. would love to try something like this. Are you running face to face courses at all, in the near future? I’m in London and I can’t remember where you are..?
    Many thanks
