I started collecting handmade glass when I lived in Japan, and most of what I have is from that time. The glass candle holder is from Iceland. I love the way the glass plays with the light.
We live right on the seafront, which is mostly good, but also especially windy and cold in winter. Also, the windows are constantly covered with sea spray. Here are some pictures of the Brighton Pier at night through a very dirty window. You can see the reflection of things on the wall in our living room.
