Love this


A painted and kiln fired glass suncatcher. The borders and central piece with the plant outline are painted then textured with sticks and scratching to reveal the coloured glass underneath. The painted glass is then fired in a kiln before being assembled and soldered, finishing off with small metal loops that the work can be hung from.

Please note that the chain is not included, I just used it to hang the piece to take the photograph.

The glass I use often has interesting tiny bubbles and ripples that create textures and these are part of the nature of the glass. Because the piece is handmade, every one is unique.

Overall size 11cm x 15cm approximately 4mm thick
The central design is 11cm x 7cm

Further information
The soldering is lead and therefore the piece is for decoration only and should not be placed where young children may handle or play with it.

Although at the moment the joins are shiny, these will develop a darker patina over time and give the piece a more ancient appearance.


Plants mean a lot to me, I have always admired the way that Scandinavian artists and designers incorporate plant patterns into the fabrics and interiors that they design. Strong shapes and colours that vibrate against each other translate well into glass and it is this that inspired me for this piece.
