Stained Glass

About 5 years ago when I was preparing to open my garden, I was approached by a young stained glass artist and restorer by the name of Victoria List. She asked if it would be possible for her to use my garden as a showcase for her work. I immediately said yes. Victoria had bought along samples of her work and I agreed with her which ones to use and where to put them. After the opening she gave me one of her pieces, and I know that you shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth but I was a little disappointed, not with her work or her gift. It was the colour. At that time I couldn’t find anywhere to put it. It jarred with everything. 

But now I have my hot border it fits in beautifully with the reds, oranges and yellows of the canna Cleopatra and the purple dahlia Faro.

Victoria sold several pieces from my garden and has gone on to have a successfully business creating and restoring stained glass to an age old tradition.

  1. Beautiful, I have friends who used to make stained glass but sadly couldn’t make a living from it here in Italy, very sad. Your piece looks perfect in the hot border.
