This has been made for the same person as the other Maldon picture tile. Her mother's name is Dawn (hence the name of the boat) and she was a work colleague of mine before she retired and moved to Maldon.
Thanks for your support - I think I am going to make what I like in future, anyway. It is very difficult to make things that are exactly like, rather than inspired by, a particular place. This is especially true when I am working on a tile 12cm (approximately 5 inches) square.
She wanted the balastrade not a wall and the hedges look like lumps of glass rather than hedges. I cannot refire it as it will all go flat as I already fired it twice so that I could add the tree which I had made separately. So I think I will have to start again.
Thank you. I had never done any glass fusing before January of this year and bought my kiln in May. Having taken early retirement after spending over 30 years teaching Maths to 11 - 16 year olds, I have discovered that I can be creative!!!
