Seasonal greetings and a Happy New year to all our artists and customers
We have some new Christmas items in the Gallery this December.
Lynn Morley, our stained glass artist, has made some new stained glass Christmas Trees especially for the Gallery. Each individual tree has a small mirror base which reflects the coloured glass really well. A star tops each tree, some of which are made from millefiori. Lynn has made one large table decoration with three trees fixed to bigger mirror.
We also have some new stained glass tealights and panels from Lynn so come along and see them on display.
Other Christmas items in the Gallery include fused glass Christmas Tree ornaments on ribbons by Gaynor Murray. This is the final lot of these lovely decorations including penguins, robins, snowmen and holly.
We also have some new Christmas tree or hanging decorations from Lou McGill made from birchwood in a variety of shapes with unique handdrawn zentangle designs. Each decoration features individual designs on both sides and has a string hanger in keeping with the rustic appeal. Zentangles are designs made using structured patterns as a form of creative meditiation. Each decoration is made using a permanent sakura pigma pen so the designs will not fade.
We have new work by potter Peter Wareing and a have extended our range of pots by Andy Priestman. We have also asked contributing artists to provide smaller items that would be great as Christmas presents. We have several small prints by Lisa Hooper and Lou McGill. We also have a new range of the very popular Railway Station Poster series by Lou – small framed A4 prints which make excellent presents. We still have a few leather bags by Gillian, scarves by Elegant Originals and Harebell Designs, and textile prints and hangings by The Mochrum Artist and Handmade by Heather so we have a wide range of items to cater for many tastes. We also have jewellery by Red Squirrel Crafts and the new Washi Paper jewellery series by Lou McGill.
