Inspired by the beautiful scenery of Tarn Hows in the Lake District, this pendant is a miniature work of art!  Tarn Hows is part of the Monk Consiton estate bought by Beatrix Potter and now owned by the National Trust.

To make this pendant I used glass enamels, stringers and confetti and fused them together in my digitally controlled kiln.  The bail is sterling silver and the pendant is supplied for you to suspend on your own chain or cord.  The chain shown is for display purposes only.

Number 16 in a series of "Lake District Inspirations" coasters, bowls, dishes, stand-alone scenes and jewellery designs. Each design is totally unique and unrepeatable.

Fused glass scene of two silhouetted trees against a colourful sunset.  13 x 15.5 cm.

Note that this is not one of the numbered LD series because it is not based on an actual view, although I may have had Tarn Hows in mind when creating this.

A 12cm high and wide free-standing scene showing my impression of one of Lakeland's iconic packhorse bridges.  The rocks are done with a process involving coating coarse frit with a different colour of finer frit, firing and then reversing the piece of glass before adding the other parts of the scene.

I painted this scene of trees reflected in the water at the wooded edge of Buttermere using multiple layers of glass, Glassline paints and various sizes of frit. To get the colours and appearance of depth, there were 9 separate firings in my digitally controlled kiln. The scene is approx. 165 x 130mm and the colours really come to life when placed in front of a sunny window or with backlighting. A small plastic stand is included with this item.

Those of you who know the Lake District know that rain is one of the reasons that this is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Without it there would be none of the lakes and greenery which make it very special. This S-curve free-standing scene is a celebration of the rain with plenty of pretty blue bubbles and silver flakes representing the raindrops. It is approx. 13cm wide and 9cm high.

Another in my series of Lake District inspired pieces, I carefully arranged frit and pieces of dichroic glass to form a scene showing a stony stream in the foreground, flashes of water catching the light in the middle, with a background of heathery fells. The dish is approx. 155mm along the edges and 25mm deep.

This design is inspired by the many waterfalls in the Lake District.

To make this small dish (73mm x 73mm x 20mm) I arranged pieces of dichroic glass, stringers and frit on plain Tekta glass, fused it all together, then added cobalt oxide for the waterfall, another layer of Tekta and some more frit in the foreground, and then put it back into the kiln for another firing cycle to fuse the new layer.  Finally, it was returned to the kiln once more to slump the glass into a dish.

Use as a display piece, or a ring dish, or for keys; use your imagination! :-)

Very thin pieces of coloured glass were positioned one at a time on a base of Tekta glass to form a scene showing an abstract view of the Lake District fells. The whole piece was slumped in my digitally controlled kiln to form a free-standing curved shape, 133 x 84 x 23mm. The colours really come to life when placed in front of a sunny window or with backlighting, or it could be used as a small display stand or a candle bridge.

This fused glass bowl was inspired by Tarn Hows in the snow. One Boxing Day we went for a walk around Tarn Hows when the sun was shining through the lightly falling snow making everything sparkle.

To make this, I used glass "confetti" for the trees and grass, mica and silver flakes for the snow and Copper oxide to make the bubbles for the tarn. The whole piece has a base and cap of Tekta glass, so is food safe, and was fused and then slumped in my digitally controlled kiln to form a small bowl, 13mm diameter and 20mm deep.

Using special fusable glass paints and frit, with tiny amounts of Copper oxide, I painted this Derwentwater scene onto a sheet of Tekta glass, fused it in my digitally controlled kiln, topped with a further piece of glass, fused it again and finally slumped it to form a free-standing S-curve, approx. 130 x 80 x 25mm. The colours really come to life when placed in front of a sunny window or with backlighting.

This pair of shallow fused glass dishes (80mm x 80mm) show a Lake District scene and use a combination of frit and Glassline paints between and on top of Tekta plain glass. The view is continuous across the two dishes, but each scene stands on its own as well.

The design was created by me from a view shown by one of my old photographs and was fused and slumped in my digitally controlled kiln. If anyone knows where this is in the Lakes please let me know - I didn't label the photo!
