#bandofsketchers spiral

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt.. Spiral.
Spiral of wire weaving my friend Deborah did for one of my glass cabochons I made at Angela Ashtons fused glass workshop a few years ago.

The wire weave and chain is a deep bronze colour, I couldn’t really do it justice. There are coloured glass and metallic effect glass in the cabochon.

I’m happy with the drawing, it’s not perfect but it does represent it.

Above our door

I designed this about 25 years ago. A cat resting in the window above our front door. My friend Phil Shaw who was a carpenter also knew how to make stained glass, so I drew out the pattern and he made this up for me. It’s been there ever since and I love it. When we had our house double glazed I wanted to have this incorporated into a window but they couldn’t do it, so it remains, behind the single glass window. Letting the sunlight in. Coloured patches on the carpet.
