I wanted to mention the lovely work of stained glass artist Jane Littlefield.  She has an exhibition coming up called ‘Telling Tails’, displaying her work alongside fellow artist Hester Cox who is a printmaker.  Jane’s glass pieces are hand-painted using traditional stained glass paints and translucent enamels, often using many layers and textures, that are fired in the kiln.

She has recently worked on projects with primary schools to design and produced windows for their buildings as well as taking on commissions for personal artpieces.

Her own work is inspired by the landscape and animals of the Peak District.

Hester Cox is a full-time printmaker specialising in collagraphs but interested in all aspects of printmaking.

Hester graduated from Harrow School of Art and Design with a BA(Hons) in Illustration in 1994. She lives and works in Masham, North Yorkshire. Collagraph and solarplate are her preferred methods and she often combines these to create one richly coloured and textured print.

If you’re lucky enough to be in the Yorkshire area in the next couple of weeks, then you can catch both artist’s work at Rural Arts, The Old Courthouse, 4 Westgate, Thirsk, North Yorkshire, YO7 1QS. The exhibition runs between 16th March – 31st May 2013. I think their work makes a great match. Jane has been a follower of my blog for while now and I’m hoping to do some work with her on a personal project in the coming months. Watch this space. Good luck with the exhibition Jane.

    Great to read this – I already love Hester’s work – and very nice to be introduced to Jane’s. There’s something that reminds me of medieval glass in her pieces….must dig out the image I’m thinking of and send it to you ! Intrigued about your new project too – look forward to hearing lots more !

      I know what you mean about medieval glass, Jane has also worked in churches, perhaps that is the link. Have a lovely catch up with Lisa this weekend. I wish I was coming too.

    How do you manage to come up with artists with such varied styles and mediums ? It’s such a treat for us 🙂

      I think it’s a reflection on what a world of talented people there are to choose from out there, and I’m just dipping my toe ! Glad to hear you like them too

    I so love her work as I too am a glass and print lover. I never thought to combine the two and she has done this amazingly. I adore everything I see of hers. I hope her exhibition goes terrific. I shall be following her and her work.
