Commission Window - Findochty Holiday Cottage

I recently finished a commission window for the Findochty Holiday Cottage and delivered it today. It was a beautiful day to visit the harbour town of Findochty and the holiday let the owners, Clare and Steve, are renovating is delightful. The old fisherman's cottage is just a two minute walk from a quaint sandy beach - what more could you ask for when looking for a holiday. If lucky, you could even see some of the Moray Firth Spotted Dolphins playfully swimming by. They are quite common in the area.

Planning stage - drawing the design to scale (above), shading in areas and marking where colours should go.

Piecing together all the shapes to make sure it all fits (above). I love creating 'sea' themed glass products and was thrilled when Clare and Steve asked that I undertake the commission. Being a Cornish lass, it makes perfect sense to design such patterns.

The final design laid out on the kiln shelf - ready for firing. The window measures 720mm x 500mm and was a great project to work on. It will be placed in the inner porch when entering the property. It will be the first thing people see when opening the front door - I think it's very welcoming and suits the cottage.

If you would like to book Findochty Holiday Cottage, please look at the website. It's a beautiful, quaint cottage, in a lovely part of the Scotland.
