Flowing glass.

IMG_5599Enamelled copper bowl, diameter 4 inch. The glass flowed to please – sometimes it’s stubborn.

bowl 009Don’t recall what I was attempting here – but it will do.

    Beautiful pieces, Harry. I love glass work. πŸ™‚ I sometimes visit the National Glass Centre at Sunderland. Always an inspiration.
    Your header photo makes me smile because I went there with Viv. πŸ™‚

    • I’m sorry, Jo. Your comments were in the spam box. They are now approved. I’ve neglected this blog lately as I’ve been finishing a novel. Viv had beta-read the first half and was waiting for the rest – but I was too late and am so sorry for that. I do miss the lovely Viv, I keep expecting to find posts from her . . . The new book, a sequel to ‘Tom Fleck’, is called ‘The Black Caravel’ and it is dedicated to the memory of Vivienne Blake. I put it onto Amazon the other day – I do wish I’d been more brisk, so that Viv could have proof read the completed story. But I have a warm glow inside when I think of her.

        I’m not especially religious, Harry, but I do think that Viv will have followed your progress and be happy that you got the book to completion. πŸ™‚
        I do seem to have ended up in a few spam folders lately, so no worries. Good luck with sales!
