Linda's 'Marbellous' light shade was shown at the prestigious 'New Glass - Ancient Skill, Contemporary Artform' exhibition at Blackwell, The Arts and Crafts House in 2013. This piece was made specifically to complement the Arts and Crafts surroundings of Blackwell. It uses the copper foil technique and contains over 700 individual pieces, including 1kg of marbles, each of which had to be individually foiled and tinned prior to assembly.
