A present from my Art Teacher

Aren't these fab...

22 years ago (!) I was taught Art by Ron White at Castle Douglas High School. After his retirement Ron started a business engraving glass.

He came into the gallery this summer and spoke to Jill, he was delighted to hear of my recovery and see what we were doing at the gallery.

A couple of weeks later he came in with these McGill Duncan Gallery glasses, which he'd engraved for me. Not many people have glasses like this to drink out of and I feel so lucky that he made them for me, what an unbelievably kind present, I treasure them.

He was a live wire of an Art Teacher and I look back with fond memories of my lessons - the Art room was always somewhere I felt at home.
