My name is Lynne Westcott and since I was a small child I have always loved creating/making things!
I have always been fascinated by glass but it was not until I had been on a couple of fused glass courses at a glass studio in Stirling (where I used to live) in June 2014 that I purchased my first Paragon Kiln and Crafty Burd was born! In June 2015 I then added a Gemini Ring Saw which meant I could cut glass to any shape which of course opened up a whole new range of exciting projects for me to try – the possibilites really are endless! I then purchased a second (larger) kiln in April 2016 which has enabled me to fuse larger items such as dishes, plates as well as a selection of fused glass wall hangings. There are so many different colours and textures of glass to experiment with and a never ending list of new techniques to try! If you have something in mind that you cannot find on the website – why not commission a piece!
In April 2020 an exciting new range of (non glass) products which include some funky boho macrame wall hangings and some colourful and quirky crocheted scarves & cowls, necklaces and super cute drawstring bags were added.
As I have now relocated to the Scottish Highlands you can either find me at work in my Home Studio in Hill of Fearn, near Tain or at a local craft fair in and around the Ross-shire area. Please also have a look at my Events page for a list of upcoming venues and be sure to check out the Stockists page where there is a list of where you will be able to find Crafty Burd designs.
As new designs are always being added please come back and visit the website soon!
