This week I have been thinking a lot about wave forms.
I live near the sea so perhaps that's no real surprise. I love the seaside whatever the weather and I have a huge amount of photos to prove it!
Partly it's the colours, the combinations are different every time and I have been searching for a way to translate wave forms and the loveliness of the sea into a stained glass something or other.....lamp or panel probably.
I started with a tealight holder, separating the three sections and using slightly different coloured glass in each one. I also used some of the shells, stones, seaglass etc that I habitually pick up on any visit to the beach.
Isn't it a marvellous thing when you find an idea that makes use of all of the shells, sweet wrappers, yoghurt pots etc that you just knew you were collecting for a reason?
