A new name in Stained Glass Garden Art - Spiroglass

I've recently come back from a trip to the Isle of Mann, sometimes referred to as IOM
One of the highlights of the IOM was the amazing countryside. Here are a couple of pictures to prove my point!

These pictures were taken from the period of November 2016 to January 2017.

I love the outdoors including a spot of gardening. This is where I was wondering if there was any way of making the garden more attractive for longer periods of time.

The Piano Man - Jo Cuffley
When I came back to Derbyshire a good friend of mine had an idea for a new business. Jo Cuffley is a stained glass artist based in Derbyshire. She goes around the country assisting people when they need a new stained glass window. She also gets involved in producing bespoke pieces of art, repairs and renovations.

The new venture is named Spiroglass and it's all about stained glass garden art based on the 1970's toy called Spirograph (remember it?)

As it's a brand new business we thought that the right market for it would be London. To date we have attended  couple of markets and the response has been great. We have added to the collection and will endevour to produce new products when the market is right.

SwearPig - New website announced

It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce the launch of our new website for SwearPig and can you guess what the name is?

Drum roll...

Website Launch - SwearPig

Yes, I know! What an anticlimax...

Still, as part of our imminent launch we have created a Wordpress site that includes the story of our development from creating a piggy bank from scratch, through to organising the potters and completing the manufacturing process.

We have included a page dedicated to our launch and subsequent auction of a limited number of SwearPigs that will be hand painted some some of the best artists in the UK. These will be numbered and signed by the artists. There is still a way to go as I am due to pick up the moulds tomorrow from Stoke on Trent and deliver them to the potter near to Belper very soon.

If you would like to keep up to date regarding the launch and charity auction, please visit us at

Thank you
