It’s been quite a while since I last put out a post.
We have been really busy during this Pandemic with preparation work, working on new designs, sorting out a new flue on the furnace and putting insulation around it to make it more efficient. All the jobs that have been put off for years but finally have time to do!
Plus, my article was accepted to be printed in the PCA Bulletin 2021. This makes it three articles published in The PCA Bulletin’s in four years. In 2018 I wrote, A “Norfolk Assembly”, this was the story of Sue and I making a “patch” pear, and with US artist Colin Richardson’s collaboration in making a tazza at the Chrysler Museum of Glass’s hot shop, Norfolk VA. All beautifully photographed by Diane Warning.
This was special to me as I was born in Norfolk, UK.
The second article published in the PCA Bulletin 2020 was entitled, “Fun with Cane”.
This year, 2021, I wrote for the PCA Bulletin “A Personal Progress”. I write on my exploration into murrine that I use in making paperweights.
During the lockdown, we also managed to video showing us “making a paperweight” from start to finish, which we sent to one of our dealers in the US to use at the Texas PCA June meeting. As the guest artists, Sue and I were unfortunately unable to attend.
