The one on the right above is a commission that i have just finished for a marine biologist who studies plankton and wanted me to make a piece showing the details of a plankton cells as seen using 300 times magnification…. I made it in 10mm float glass and with all the details it reflects the light just beautifully…. she was delighted with the result and told me that some of her students are now interested in exploring their ‘passions’ in glass.


Well if you missed the best event of the year The open studios of the Arcadian Artists’… here are a couple of photos to show you what it was like…

Arcadian Artists 2010      arcadian artist 2010

We had a spectacular weekend of lovely hot weather and even though a thunderstorm came through on Saturday late afternoon, it only served to cool things down and not dampen our spirits. Thank you to all the wonderful people who made the trek out to Dural and came to visit Shayilili…. you made it a really memorable weekend!


This year again I will be exhibiting and showing my glass work at Shyihili Gallery which you will find at 25 Muraban Road Dural on the weekend of the 13th and 14th November….. 9am to 5pm

Please come … there is some really stunning art and because you won’t be paying gallery or agent fees, the prices are a lot more affordable. Great Christmas gifts to lifelong treasures.
