This is the retail outlet for Dawn Turner Designs. Here you will find an array of fused glass art for homes and interiors. Some of the items are total one-off design samples from previous seasons. Others are popular products, but even when making more than one of something, each one is handmade, and unique, and no two pieces will ever be totally identical. Occasionally, items that didn't quite meet Dawn's exacting standards might make it to the shop, but we wll always point out any faults. Commissions and bespoke orders are welcome, get in touch to discuss your ideas.

Call these what you will! Some people refer to them as wish-sticks, we call them sun-catchers. Either way, they look great hanging in the window and look pretty good hanging from a tree or stake in the garden (but you might want to bring them in in bad weather, they’re durable to the cold, but won’t like to be bashed in the wind!)

The large suncatchers are a substantial 25cm drop, and 5cm wide with a raised textured design created with frit (granules of glass). You might want to keep it somehwere within touching distance.

Each of these are hand assembled, so each one is unique, whilst they will be simialr, no two of these are the same.

The glass goes into the kiln to be fused and fully annealed for strength and durability. This is done in one of my dedicated specialist glass kilns. Each firing can take anything from 12 to 24 hours depending on thickness, detail and more. As well as controlling the rate of heating, glass needs to be held at precise temperatures and cooled at steady rate to make sure there is no stress in the glass – annealing is part of this complex but important firing process

This particular one is a multitude of shades of scarlet, red, orange, yellow, lime, green, turquoise, blue and purple creating a textured, tactile rainbow, and is finished with a complementary organza ribbon.

We have baby sun-catchers and tealights using the same technique, make for a lovely set.
