We are used to lovely reactions to our glass splashbacks when we install, but this week might have won the prize… a big fat smacker of a kiss!
Interestingly though, it wasn’t the only “reaction”, as that’s also what the splashbacks are.. the effects are all due to different glasses reacting both with each other and the pure silver foil used (in the centre of the “wave” as well as a few “wisps”). Although you can pick up dark greens, browns and yellows, none of the colours were in fact used, but they have been created by the different minerals and metals in the different elements reacting with each other. This effect is both expected, and unpredictable at the same time, making it a choice for the brave or adventurous customer !
This design has been one of Liz’s favourites for a while, but it’s only this week that she has had a chance to create one for a customer.. so this week has been a good week!
Following our amazingly successful Crowdfunder Campaign where we raised 60% MORE than our target, we are now to be found in our awesome new workshops on the Rose Mills Industrial Estate, Hort Bridge Ilminster.
This is great news for us as it now means we are able to offer a full range of courses and workshops, as well as having a separate area well away from the dust of the workshop to display splashback samples and a range of art glass Liz designs and makes in between splashback commissions.
We are also able to hire out our kiln, cold working equipment and workbench space to other glass artists subject to availability.
It will be a few more weeks before we are fully up and running and open generally to the public, but in the meantime, please feel free to contact us to make an appointment to view.
