Large Freestanding Wave Dark Aqua Crashing Wave

The wave is created in my Studio 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 kiln for 13 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.

The texture creates a large surface area to allow reflection and sparkle of the natural light. 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. 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. 

It is created with iridised dark aquamarine and light aqua and turquoise glass and textured white sea spray.

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

Each piece of my glass is created without templates or machinery so no two pieces are identical, therefore pieces may differ slightly from photographs.
