Whenever I look at this picture it reminds me that I really want to make more furniture with glass in it. I have a whole range of ideas in my sketch book that I want to try, a lot of it with fused glass. (Soon I hope). Yet again it will have that sea sidey feel and will probably lend itself best to bathroom cabinets or display cupboards for those who want somewhere to rightly show off their beach 'treasure'!

This is one of my favourite pieces and I got the idea for it whilst doodling in my sketch book at the Harrogate Gift Fair a few years back when things went rather quiet. Each door has a different infill material. Glass at the top, then aged copper, perforated zinc and wooden slats at the bottom, plus a secret compartment! It's quite tall and stands at around 7 feet high. The 'optional' fish, which hang either side, were to give it that little sea side flavour.
