Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated by glass and the way it reflects light, from collecting marbles and playing alleys in the school playground to simply finding pleasure in buffing them with a cloth and watching them sparkle. I loved chemistry at school, not because I was good at it, but simply because I loved using the small clear shiny test tube's we put a range of colourful chemicals into.
I adore the poetry and history of glass, the thought that something has been around for such along time, that helps illuminate our home's and our lives. Something that is hard, but so fragile, can be jagged or faceted but when blown often has rounded contours.The sound a glass pane makes, when drop's of rain pit pat on it. When tree's blow, even if we are inside, we get a sense of the wind, even though we can't see it, we see it's effect. So it is with glass, it helps captures light and reminds us just how beautiful it is.
I loved visiting Venice and the island of Murano glass.
This wonderful material is now used in eco home's, as well as stately home's and come in a huge array of colour's. Chandelier's make me giddy with delight and of course mirror's, well, they are a big part of my job as a Stylist, helping clients uncover their own unique style!
