Helen Millard is having a show at Broadfield. She's asked me to produce a collection of photography of her work to run with it.http://broadfield.dudley.gov.uk/whats-on/current-exhibitions Also you may be interested to see her website http://www.helenmillard.co.uk/cameo-glass/cameo-glass.htm On from 23rd Feb

Simon, her work is amaaaazing!  The fish swirl, and the fish with the seals alongside made me feel a bit weepy.  Always a sign of beautiful glass!  Not sure I'd be able to afford a piece of her work though...looks like it takes a heck of a long time to make for starters!   :o :)

Helen's at my studio this Monday with some new work. But I think theres going to be a good collection,(big) I know she has had to prize them out some of the collectors hands with some bits of work.When they have them they don't like to let go of Helens work.

Yes Helen's work is quite special, the amount of work is incredible. I remember one of the smaller work's took three attempts to get the blowing right (colour grads etc) and three hundred hours engraving. No her work may not be cheap but there is a lot of woman hours gone into it.

Hello,this is Helen Millard here replying to you all on Simon Bruntnell's site. I'm in his studio today having photographs taken of new pieces to go on my Website. Thankyou all so much for the kind comments. It cheered me to read them as I have been running around in panic mode preparing for my forth coming exhibition at Broadfield House glass Museum. The exhibition officially opens at on March 1st with the private view at 1.00pm. You are all welcome to attend, and it would be nice to meet as many glass enthusiast's as possible!
