Inspired by Stromness in Orkney but reminiscent of the fishing villages all round the coast of Scotland.
Each piece of glass is unique, different although similar to others in the range. I find it impossible to recreate an image exactly, I tend to wander off with new colours and shapes.
The coloured pieces of glass are all cut by hand and placed together like a collage. The glass is then put into the kiln and heated to around 1400C which bonds all the pieces together. Sometimes the glass is put into the kiln a second or even third time depending on the finish I'm looking for. This all takes time, around 12hrs per firing, but its a thrill each time I open the kiln to see if the glass has behaved as I'd expected.
These look great sitting on a sunny window ledge with the sun coming through them.
size is approx 20cm x 10cm
