Large Freestanding Wave - Poppy field Sea Scene

This is a freestanding wave. It is handmade in my home workshop in Cornwall and is inspired by the fabulous coast surrounding my county. Each piece is created using layers of thin coloured bullseye glass with crushed and powdered glass to create detail and texture. It has been fused 3 times in a specialist kiln for 13 hours each time.  

The texture creates a large surface area to allow reflection and sparkle of the natural light. Each piece is hand cut and created without the use of templates or machinery so no two pieces are identical, they each have their own unique characteristics. The poppies on the cliff edge are inspired by the fields over the North coast of Cornwall which blossom a magnificent red each spring. Areas such as Polly Joke, Crantock and Pentire. 

The transparent glass allows light to pass through and the slim footprint allows the glass to be displayed on a narrow shelf as well as windowsills. Candles can be lit behind the glass to create a lovely ambience.

It is 9cm tall and approx 23 cm wide. The wave is signed.
