Hand painted 'sweetpea' vase by Jo WelchI recently went to a lovely shop called ‘A Room Full of Butterflies’ in Nottingham which is owned by Jo Welch, one of the artists who contributed to Musings on Mothering, to pick up a very special item. Jo produces beautiful art on glass, creating one-off hand painted pieces. As it was a loved one’s birthday recently, I commissioned this piece from Jo. I think it’s absolutely beautiful, and the present was received with many thanks.

It got me thinking…

When I was receiving submissions from artists and writers for Musings on Mothering a few people mentioned breastfeeding images created on glass – painted, or made out of stained glass, but unfortunately, no colourful art on glass was submitted for the book in the end. But if anyone still knows of any artistic breastfeeding images captured on glass, please do let me know!
