I love Twitter. Not only because it is funny and diverting and not too time-consuming, but because nice things come of using it. 

About a week ago I saw a tweet from Lisa Stevens about some chancer selling sawdust on Etsy at $20 a packet as "Rustic Confetti". How we laughed. I joked that I should sell my left-over glass shards all beautifully packaged as "Evil Confetti". Lisa replied that she would happily take any of my glass shards off my hands to use in her ceramics, so I quickly put together a parcel of little bits and pieces and popped it in the post.

And then, a few days later, what should arrive through my post box but this stunning ceramic piece that she made using the glass.

It makes me very happy whenever I look at it.


  1. How lovely, like a luminescent Thing of the Sea.

  2. That is sooo funny. twenty dollars too! the ceramic piece is lovely. i used to make tiles with glass beads in the centre, glass does beautiful things, as well you know. x

    ps thanks for your v sweet comment yesterday.

  3. he he, my report binding maching is stuffed full of chads, ebay here i come ;-)
    i've long admired sea urchin's porcelain pieces, this is lovely too

  4. fantastic! how beautiful it is and how lovely how it came about!... kindness is always rewarded!:)

  5. The turq and sea green colours are stunning!

  6. Wow, lucky you. That is one of the nicest things I have seen for a while. What gorgeous colours she has produced. What a great combination of two different media.

    I do laugh sometimes about the things people sell on Ebay and they really do sell. Someone sold a jar of dreams once. An empty jar of course. The possibilities are endless.
