Unique Art Glass Sculpture -Dry stone wall with meadow grasses – SOLD

This rocky sculptures series has meadow and sea grasses engraved onto the surface of the glass.

Product Details

SOLD

This handmade art glass sculpture is a new addition to my rocky sculptures series. The composition is new and I’ve used a new technique to add more detail to the surface. Meadow and sea grasses are engraved onto the surface of the glass on both sides

First I construct it by hand using chunks of American Bullseye Glass to create natural forms. Then I fire it in the kiln over several days.

It’s a 3 dimensional piece in a moody silver grey and clear glass with black etching.

Each composition is different. It’s only when I take it out of the kiln after a 6 day firing that I can see the result and find out if I’ve captured the essence of my inspiration!

My handmade art glass sculptures explore the beauty of stone bridges, harbour walls, dry stone walls and rocky outcrops.

The compositions are evocative of the landscape and suggest rocks and stones placed harmoniously together.  I contrast defined edges with the softness of adjacent vegetation. The blocks of colour echo the surrounding landscape, water and sky. This results in a sense of place and atmosphere.
