Coastal Curlew Range
Living close to Farlington Marshes which overlook Langstone Harbour gives no end of inspiration. From the diversity of habitats including mudflats, saltmarsh and meadowlands; to the changes in Season bringing varied flora and fauna. Langstone Harbour is of special conservation interest and holds Ramsar status.
As an avid birdwatcher it was no surprise that I felt my first glass art collection had to embrace this. The Curlew bird is unmistakable. It is the largest European wading bird and is recognised for its long down curved bill and beautiful piping call. I wanted to represent them against a watercolour, abstract background. At Langstone the sunrises and sunsets can show vivid orange so it was essential for me to capture this.
