Holly’s glass…

I’m still painting glass in glass world and it’s still a little slow, but at least it gave me time to paint this for Holly. It’s a kind of ‘This is Your Life’ glass. Of course Holly is only 18, but on her glass there’s the crab that chased her on Llanbedrog beach when she was 2, the three cats that she’s grown up with – Tia, Misty, and now Luna - Chester her horse, Benjie her dog, a couple of her blue-egg laying chickens, her favourite book when she was a baby gets a mention, a sheep (one of the many she has owned for a while), her guitar, an Ed Hardy tattoo, a few books as she reads avidly, a shrimp for all the happy hours we spent shrimping, and of course ‘catch a falling star’. She’s there too in her rose embroidered docs, her favourite band T shirt, shorts and tights, her piercings and wristbands, with her hair a rainbow of all the colours she’s dyed it.

I may start these as a line in my shop - aka: my expensive hobby. Wine, beer, champagne, etc. They won’t be cheap, but I think that they’d make a great present.

Views anyone? I'd be interested to know if you think these might sell and what you would pay for one.

    I think that these are a fab idea. I would definitely pay about £25.00/£30.00. Well worth it.

    I would set the price at about £25 - £30 also. If they are too expensive people won't pay... plus at that price people would buy more in the future..

    Thanks everyone. You've really helped. These glasses are pretty labour intensive but with your guidance I'm going to charge £32.50 boxed in one of my de-luxe carry boxes and see how it goes. Again, many thanks.
