House Number

After making my own House Number I was asked to make my first commission piece this was a little daunting initially, I really felt the pressure of wanting to do my best and please the customer. So I set about buying the glass with a brief of a simplistic design of natural glass Roman Numerals on slate.

The chosen glass that I purchased online was alot darker in colour than I had hoped for so I literally had to select the lighter areas of the glass.

I find working on mesh a good way to work and it allows for mistakes rather than working directly onto the slate.

A Happy customer! Goes quite well with the style of house I think?

Well yet another craft! and I must say it is quite addictive! I have learned some amazing skills from the talented Mosaic Artist Sophie Robbins based at Textile Workshop Nottingham. I have used my earlier felting project for influence and I think that for future projects I will experiment with previous work and change the mediums/techniques to fit a new craft.
