Finding Inspiration: Tamsin Abbott

c.Tamsin Abbott
Almost two months have passed since the project artists were given their single, pale glove. For all concerned this is a period of contemplation about how to handle the challenge. Many have expressed the intention of putting their thoughts on hold until the New Year to allow other projects to conclude, while for a few, inspiration has struck when least expected.   
Here's a chance find which recently presented itself to Tamsin Abbott on Ebay, a 1927 Girl Guide diary where the name Daphne would not be out of place perhaps. Full of gems about the authors daily life such as, "We're in the middle of a quarrel with George.", this isn't an object or subject which would usually inspire Tamsin's work in stained glass. It will therefore be fascinating to see how, if, this find will work it's way into Tamsin's final glove piece.
