This image of the skating rink stole shows how I tried different colour combinations. The final design I am really pleased with & having sold out I am waiting for restock. 

It has been so exciting to see the development of this gripping new commission by Garsington Opera, written by leading British composer David Sawer with award-winning playwright Rory Mullarkey, and based on the novel by Chilean author Roberto Bolaño. 


Nuria, a beautiful young skating champion, has a powerful admirer, Enric, whose obsession drives him to pilfer funds to build her an ice rink in a deserted Spanish mansion. A murder on the ice becomes the centre of this thrilling tale of jealousy, political corruption and the lengths we go to for the ones we love.
