Ahoy there! Thanks for taking the time to check out my Felt page. I'm Kristy Lowe, the maker behind Artlight, based in the sunny Bay of Plenty. What you will find here on Felt are some of the creations I enjoy making the most. I love crochet, cross-stitch and hand-sewing but my most favourite thing to create with is stained glass. There's something magical about a substance which is neither defined as a solid or a liquid - glass is indeed in it's own category!
I first fell in love with glass because of a fairy. She was hanging in a window of a hazy student flat and as soon as I saw her I was captivated. It seemed as though her wings held rainbows and I had to know how to make this exquisite specimen myself. So I took some night classes and learned the basics. Over the last 20 years I've honed those skills and developed designs of my own. I use the Tiffany technique (also called copper-foiling) to assemble my creations. I can make commission pieces and get a real thrill making special items that hold meaning for people. Any questions please ask.
You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram as "Artlight Makes". Enjoy checking out Felt!
