Gigha Klinkenborg (aka: Mrs K)
Hi, I'm Gigha, and I am named after a beautiful Hebridean Island situated just off the west coast of Scotland.
I'm a total craftaholic! A serial glass artist, stitcher, painter and total hoarder of craft supplies and anything that could be used for crafting purposes!
I have been creating with stained glass for around 25 years and love it more than ever. I never tire of making colourful things from a variety of different types of glass.
I am lucky enough to work in my own fabulous studio (my happy place) on the first floor of an old Victorain warehouse on Torridge Hill, Bideford. Spending time in my studio, designing and creating with glass is particularly therapeutic and the end results are extremely rewarding.
I also live in Bideford, North Devon with Mr K (Carl) who restores classic VWs. He is also a part-time master carpenter, Rock DJ and acoustic/audio pedant! I know that whatever I need to compliment my glass or studio, he's the man to make it.
If you're local to Bideford, you're bound to see our lovely 1974 van (Burn-E the 'FEUERWEHR' fire bus) around town. (although not lately as he is currently undergoing a full restoration).
