Stanhoe’s own Mary Lancefield (photo, left) and her friend Mary Hall (right) are at a craft market in Hempton Memorial Hall today to sell their artistic glass work.
Mary, Mary, as the pair style themselves, make decorative plaques, suncatchers, pendants and earrings from fused glass and stained glass.
Mary Hall, who has her own kiln for fusing glass, says that with the growing popularity of glass art it’s important to find new angles. For some of her pieces she creates new colours using copper wire embedded in chemically reactive glass.
Another speciality is glass plaques, like the beach huts shown above, which are curved so as to be self-supporting.
The pair plan to have a website up and running soon. In the meantime, find out more by emailing and .
