The  P e a c o c k

Admire my plumage
Iridescent blue and green
Incomparable
Quite the best you've ever seen
Watch me strut and watch me preen.
by Mike Jones

If you have read my recent newsletter you will see that it was dedicated to the images of the peacock.  It is one of my favorite birds to make. The medium of glass provides unlimited possibilities in creating various versions of colorful feathers. I use primarily fused glass when I am creating the glorious feathered fan tail. 
To read more about peacocks as a historically popular image and its part in culture, spirituality, and art, see my newsletter:

    Hi Martin,

    I did your mosaic course a few years ago and have been doing mosaics since.

    I still have a lot to learn and I keep at it. We recently re-did three bathrooms in our house and Im incorporating mosaics into each one. One completed- 4 to go.

    I’m very excited about how they will look.

    Ever since I came to your workshop I have been really interested in the glass fusion pieces you make. I have wanted to do some myself to use in my designs but don’t have a clue how to make them.

    You have a 5 day workshop for mosaic and glass fusion and a 2 day glass fusion workshop.

    I am still very much a beginner in mosaics and haven’t had any experience at all in glass fusion.

    Would you advice me to book on the two day glass fusion course first or just go straight into the 5 day course of both?

    Kind Regards Ann

    Hello Martin, Some years ago I came to you’re lovely home in broadstairs and did one of you’re mosaic courses which I enjoyed so so much. I just wondered if you still offer weekend courses and in what subjects as my partner and I would be interested regards Karon Fensome

    due to join your class in Aberystwyth 5th July as a complete novice to mosaic (do lots of other arty bits) and would love to be kept up to date with courses you run anywhere. Love the peacocks1
