But why not visit one of my stockists while I'm away?
am very excited that I have been accepted to study at the world
renowned Pilchuck Glass School in the U.S.A. this summer! However this
means that I will be away from the studio from the end of May until the
beginning of July. So please bare this in mind when ordering.
Any orders placed while I'm away will not be processed until I return.

Bee Stud EarringsThese earrings are the cutest! Perfect for wearing when the sun finally makes an appearance. How exciting!
I am honored to have been presented with Silver in the Craft & Design Selected Awards for Glass!
Thank you so much to all of you who voted during the public voting! The judge for the category said some lovely things about my work. Read more in my blog.
you are looking for an original gift for someone (or just a fun day for
yourself!), then why not buy a private lampworking class at the Duck
in a Bucket studio? Previous glass making experience is not necessary. See the tuition page for more information, class descriptions and prices. Contact me for available dates and gift vouchers.
Above: Some examples of the sort of bead making techniques you can learn in a beginners class.
I am also available to run classes at schools and other studio locations. I am CRB checked and have appropriate insurance.
Class dates are now unavailable until July '13. Get yours booked to avoid disappointment! Unfortunately Mondays are no longer available as glass blowing has taken over.
At a glance
Every piece at Duck in a Bucket Designs is individually handmade by Ema
Kelly, so no two will be exactly the same, making each one all the more
Using hot glass techniques, Ema takes inspiration from her
surroundings, the outdoors, and even the glass itself, to create her
contemporary ranges of homeware, gifts, and jewellery. Her use of bold
colours combined with minimalist forms has made her work striking and
desirable to an array of clientele. Designs interchange between playful and
elegant, all the time illustrating the tactile fluidity of the material
and the vibrancy of colours available.
