The Floral Collection
Stylised lines of flowers blowing in the wind look beautiful on a window sill and there is no watering to do. The original waves have been developed to designs on functional glass.

The Shoreline Collection
Glass comes from sand and this is the inspiration for this collection. When I was walking along the beach with Fiachra I noticed how the light caught all the sparkly bits of shell and pebble that sat on the tide line.

About Jane Drysdale & Carnelian Crafts

My children describe me as a craftaholic! In my former life as a Social Worker I used craft as a way to unwind. I did everything from card making, rubber stamping, silk painting, glass painting, papermaking, candle making, machine knitting, jewellery making, the list is endless and the evidence is in my cupboard under the stairs! Then in 2002 I bought a glass cutter and a whole new world opened up.

I became fascinated by glass when I first met my late husband Neil and spent time at his company Perthshire Paperweights. I would never have the resources to be able to work in molten glass but I bought a book and began experimenting with fused glass. From the first night I watched the temperature gauge on the kiln and drank gallons of tea until the kiln was cool enough to open, I was hooked. My love affair with this medium began and has blossomed over the years expanding from my shed in the garden to the studio in Comrie Street. Having no formal training in glass means no one has ever told me the right way to do something which allows me the chance to keep experimenting until it works ( sometimes a painful process!)

Living in such a beautiful place is wonderful, being surrounded by nature on such a large scale is inspiring, I am lucky to have a faithful black Labrador Fiachra who loves to walk for hours up the hills, along the river banks or along the seashore.

I moved the Studio from my shed up to the annexe of the shop in 2006 although the really messy stuff still happens in the old kiln.

The studio is attached to the Gift Shop and visitors are welcome to come and have a chat about how this form of glass is made.
