Incoming Tide fused glass curve

Description

This freestanding fused glass curve depicts the incoming tide along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast.

It is made from a combination of smooth and tactile textured glass to give it a sculptural feel, and comes in glorious aqua and turquoise colours which really glow in the light. No seaside scene would be complete without gulls so I have hand-painted a few to add an element of life.

The versatile Incoming Tide curve can be placed on windowsill so that when the sun shines through the glass, the colours of the scene are thrown onto the surface in front of it, as shown in the photo below. It can also be displayed against a plain pale wall where its colours can be appreciated in their true brightness.

Making the curve is a lengthy and fiddly process. I start by cutting and layering sheet glass which is then fused together in my kiln overnight. More glass is added before firing again and once it has cooled, the piece is fired for the final time to get its curved shape.

The piece is 16cm wide, 16cm high and 6cm deep. Should it need a clean, it is easily wiped over with warm soapy water. Your curve will posted Signed For and will arrive securely packaged in a double walled box with as much recyclable material as possible.

This beautiful fused glass curve would make a thoughtful and beautiful gift for those who love Wales, the sea, coastal landscapes or just the great outdoors.

Inspiration

I love every aspect of the natural world, from its landscapes and colours to its plants and wildlife - hopefully that is reflected in my work.

The Incoming Tide curve is my attempt to capture waves breaking on a beach along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, near my home in South Wales. It is fascinating to sit and watch the waves as they roll in, creating new patterns and colours each time.

As a keen walker, the fabulous scenery of this the Jurassic coastline with its rough sea provides lots of inspiration for fused glass pieces. I snap away on my phone as I walk, capturing scenes which I later use back in my workshop.
