Edward Woollard, maternal grandfather of current owner Roy Smith, opened the Blue Gallery at 16 Joy Street, Barnstaple in 1946. He was a photographer by profession and also had a café on thepremises.

Nigel's fascination with science and space led to his unique patented design of WHY, a question mark made from the letters W, H and Y. The W is at the top, the H is halfway down and the tail of the Yat the bottom curls around to form the dot of the question mark.

I create flameworked and fused glass art in my studio in Barnstaple surrounded by the stunning Devon coastal countryside. My initial inspiration is taken from the colours of the sea, preferring towork with various shades of blue, green and azure. Using flat sheets of Bullseye fusible glass as the starting point, I cut and layer the glass before firing it in one of my digitally controlled kilns.

It is wonderful to see Melody's Art on screen, but to witness Her "Paintings Wall" in Her Studio could be compared to receiving a "Dream from God".

All good wishes to you both - Geoffrey from Taunton. We received our painting in its gorgeous frame and we are over the moon with our purchase.
