Seduction – Colour from a New Perspective

Many years and many miles. The sun streams through this glass every morning and the moon many evenings. Glass and Light make magic!

I can be seduced.  There is a new pull in my life – colour from a different perspective – glass and light.  If I took the time to learn how, it could be bad!  So I won’t learn how, but I think that I will be adding more colour and light to my rooms in the future!

We are renovating the bathroom.  Actually someone is doing it for us.  And it is taking a while, but we are starting to see results, and it is looking good.

I want some stained glass for the window.  Which is a large new one.  It has an opaque bottom pane and a clear top pane.  So I went to a studio called Cheeky Monkey Glassworks, and I fell in love, with colour, all over again, and from a whole new angle.

I am putting large Poppies in the upper corners of the window.  I got to pick my glass for each section.  I fell in love.  I could have chosen every colour and been happy, but I had to narrow it down.  I think that I will have to have more stained glass.

Morning sunlight through the new “Frame” installation at Maffeo Sutton Park this morning. Cool effect.

I already have a large window, from about 30 years ago.  It was designed by me and made by a friend.  We bartered.  I knit her four sweaters and she made the window for this big old frame that I had.  I filled the glass window with all the things that I missed about the West Coast; mountains, water, scenery, moon and clouds and a few pansies top and bottom to help fill the space.  The lay-out was highly influenced by Alphonse Mucha – I was in my early twenties after all!

More morning colour at Maffeo Sutton.

I got the better of the deal.  The knitting took more time than the glass work but the window will survive a very long time, as long as it is never dropped!

Back to the black!  And to dream of colour, and light!

Happy Knitting
