Small Freestanding Wave - Nearly Home Trees

This fused glass, freestanding wave can sit on a windowsill or shelf and catches the light wonderfully.  Candles can be lit behind the wave to add extra ambiance. 

Each one is handmade and individual, there will be slight differences in each piece.

The wave is created in my home workshop and is a 2-3 day process, layers of thin coloured glass, crushed glass and powdered glass are used to create an intricate design. It is then heated in a specialist kiln for 13 -15 hours to fuse the crushed glass together, after cooling and cold working it is returned to the kiln where it is slumped over a mould for another 13 hours to create the distinctive curves. Each piece is handmade with no templates or machinery so no two are identical. 

This image is inspired by the iconic "Nearly Home trees" on the Devon / Cornwall border at Lifton, also known as Cookworthy Knapp. Many weary travellers love this heartwarming image when arriving back in Cornwall. Iridised spring green glass is complimented with Aventurine Green and jade green and texture is incorporated to increase light reflections. 

It is 6 cm tall and approx 23 cm wide. The wave is signed.
