The Andorra Adventure – Day 4

Today we got up, ready and away early, by which I mean a little before 10am. Destination Biarritz! We spent most of the day travelling and ended up a little south of Biarritz in Bodin. It’s a short, but steep, walk to the village and the beach is a healthy 10 minutes away.

The Andorra Adventure – Day 3

Day 3 is in La Rochelle, just down the road actually in Chatelaillon-Plage. Lovely village with mussel and oysters being the focus here. The campsite, Port Punay has a lovely English speaking Dutch lady on reception and she kindly obliged us with pitches facing each other for our stay. We went for a jaunt into … Continue reading

Spectrum glass – experiment number 1

I wasn’t sure about using a glass with another *COE, I thought it was a hassle it would get mixed up and it would be different schedules and generally was not really on complication that I wanted. But then I saw this pattern…and I had to have it… Obviously that means that all of the … Continue reading

Trinkets and Treasures

This week I have started using decals in my fused glass, there are more experiments in the kiln, but this one has turned out very well. This small trinket dish is 10cm x 10cm and I suppose I thought it might be a coaster, but couldn’t resist slumping it to a dish shape to make … Continue reading

Organics part deux

Here is the finished article that I showed you the special glass for here, I really like the effect that it has and wonder about a blue tint on the top to be like water…next time.
