Hi there!

 

Apologies for the site looking a little bare just at present, but please keep watching this space. I am expanding the site to incorporate not only my glass artwork, but also my other passion - textiles.

Glass art has been a major part of my life for the last few years, experimenting and "playing" with a variety of techniques, taking some variations more seriously than others! I spend a lot of time designing most of my pieces, and deliberately never make two the same (commissioned work occasionally requires this, but the design will still be unique to that project). I feel that individuality is important, and have unconciously developed a particular “Heidi” style, based largely on influences from my extensive travels abroad, and more recently by my children.

Talking of children, this brings me to my other passion - textiles. My mum taught me to sew and use the sewing machine from an early age, and I have encouraged my teenage daughter to learn too. Working together as a team we have designed and made a variety of items from bunting to bags to beanbags, and had a lot of fun in the process. She has just returned from the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan, and most of her fund-raising came from selling these items. We decided to continue creating...

This website is regularly reorganised and updated, so return visits will often reveal new stock or better images. Please feel free to browse the site and email me as usual with any queries, comments and orders.

Thank you all for your support and kind comments – it`s always good to hear from you.

 

Best Wishes

Heidi
