Waves of glass

Every October, my county hosts Open Studios, three weekends when selected artists in all manner of media open their doors and let people wander in and out, asking questions, buying things—and commissioning projects of their own.

I always set off with a list of artists I want to see, and I try to buy something from most of them. Last year, one of those was a woman who does stained glass and mosaics…and I fell in love. Haven Livingston’s Wavehaven studios incorporate glass and river stones in a way I’d never seen before. And since I was looking for something interesting to do around my fireplace….

Haven at work.

Small golden fish, swimming among the stones and currents.


Fabulous, no? And because there are streams of golden fish swimming through it, and they reflect the light, it changes throughout the day, always capturing a different pattern.

I’m already looking forward to October–and to weather that makes a fire like this appealing!

      Isn’t it though? (Now the rest of the room looks a bit shabby…)
