Latest Glass Installation

I have just finished a fused glass skylight installation this afternoon. It is above the half landing of a staircase and is 1.85 by 1.35 metres. A major requirement was that the colours were such that the light was not reduced significantly. Thus tints of colour were used in the realisation of the theme. The theme relates to the sea and the shore. A number of elements are included in an abstract manner for the clients and their children to discover and imagine.

The panel is too large for my kiln and so was made in three parts. The sinuous blue line is a raised ribbon of glass that overlaps the adjoining panels enabling the whole to be joined together on top of the 19mm sheet of toughened glass that supports the whole panel.
