Please bear with me, more pics are coming soon!!!!
This was another collaboration but with a local glass artist this time. The lovely Tina Rossiter had made these glass circles and the heart and needed stands for them to be displayed. The glass heart was made for her son’s wedding day. I loved the happy little dance she did when she saw them for the first time!!!

The result of this first piece of work is fabulous, even though I do say so myself!! It has two functions apart from being rather lovely to look at; it prevents the local heron from stealing the fish and it provides a safe cover for the pond in case of falls or trips by the owners. The steel is set on its edge which makes it much lighter to look at but also makes it very strong. The client wanted something designed in the Charles Rennie Macintosh style and she was very pleased with the result. The second one included leaving the beach section of the pond free for hedgehogs to access the water. The other part of it was to stop anyone falling in the water. They wanted an open but interesting design.
I loved this project too. A local lady had this brass Coptic Cross that she liked to have standing on her hearth where it could catch the sun and cast amazing shadows but it kept falling over. My brief was to create a base for it that matched its style without being fussy or too big. The result was a neat, heavy base that the cross fixes to almost invisibly. It was great to be able to re-purpose and old piece of steel for this as it showed its age and wasn’t too new looking.
Welly Boot Stand or Rack
Designed to fit into a small storm porch but still store the wellies of a family of four finished in grey to vanish into the background. The second is a smaller version to fit a couples’ garden shoes and wellies, finished in black hammerite for a very hard wearing finish.
