My dear mother bought me a very old butterfly collection a few years back, MY WORD, I think I should study insects a whole lot more, take a leaf out of their book. Colour and texture in nature: SO exciting.

Anyhow! This is flameworked dichroic glass, it is deliciously, outrageously shiny. And intriguing, I think.

Meanwhile! Check out these little guys.

I’m rather excited about these colours, and how inspiration is waiting just outdoors.

Some sweeeeet colours in nature, and in glass.

And here’s my little flameworking corner in the shed.

And again, with the process of flameworking, glass can be used as a solution for displaying fragile findings. (And maybe even wearing them?)

Alrighty, tomorrow I’m going to one of my FAVOURITE places ever. See you there!
