TRAVEL memories captured in warm glass can be shared and treasured via an artistic take on the traditional postcard by two Kinghorn-based artists.

Carole Robinson and daughter Rachel Hindle launch their new Cadge and Relic collaboration this weekend, which successfully attracted an invaluable £400 grant from Fife Contemporary Arts and Crafts.

Funded by Creative Scotland and Fife Council, it supports the development and networking of Kingdom artists and makers.

The grant went towards raw materials and photo shoots. Images were made into digital transfers and then fused onto hand-cut glass.

Finished limited edition products cost from £39.95. Travel photos can also be sent to the artists for use.

Carole designed the new stained glass window for St Peter’s Church in Kirkcaldy’s 200th anniversary, unveiled in September, and has had a Kinghorn studio for 10 years.

The versatile artist said: “I trained in fine art and specialised in printmaking, but guess with techniques these days, photography has always been an important part in my life, and my children have fed off what I’ve done.”

The glass postcards were exhibited at St Andrew’s Museum in the summer, and can be bought in several galleries.
