Your birds are amazing Liz congratulations

Beautiful, I would love to have one but not sure about posting it out here to Italy 🤔😍

He's gorgeous

Wonderful! .. I imagine it must be very difficult to get the proportions of the legs just right so they’re not too fragile and will take the weight of the body .. Blue Tit perfection! 😁

Delightful..

amazingly good. well done

She did brilliantly, I suspect a major part was her outstanding teacher. I particularly like the octopus - it looks wonderful and the arms have a slight frantic look as if Is was saying “Not sure this human knows what’s she’s doing!” 😄

My turn next!!

I love the slug💙💙💙

Wow!!! She picked it up quickly then!!!

Love the octopus, Elizabeth!

Exciting stuff here!For London Craft Week, Miranda Lowe, Principal Curator of Crustaceans, will be talking about Blaschka glass marine animal models with Elizabeth Welch, a glass expert. The models were created in the nineteenth century and are incredibly detailed, showing every eye and tentacle.

Phew.. Just made the most challenging octopus yet. Hollow head, and so long I have to stuff the door with fibre to get it in the kiln. This one is destined for a gallery if it’s not too ugly! I feel I deserve a bit of sugar #handmade #boro ... See MoreSee Less
