Stained Glass Walrus hanging

Description

A stained glass Walrus made from a selection of aqua coloured and textured glass with painted features and a ribbon for hanging.

Size: Approx 23cm wide x 16cm high

Made using copper foil technique (Tiffany), with silvery grey coloured joints.

Suitable for indoor or outdoor use & looks especially good hung in front of a window.

W is for Walrus! This marine creature is the 23rd animal in my Animal Alphabet. I've made various glass animals over recent years but during lockdown in March 2020 I set myself the challenge of creating a whole alphabet of stained glass animal hangings.

Walruses are fascinating creaures, up to 2000kg in weight with enormous tusks, they spend all their time in the cold sea and on marine ice. They're odd to look at, but ideally designed for their environment, acting as major predators and as an important part of the polar ecosystem. I think they make lovely glass hangings with lots of character.

Inspiration

I have made glass animals and other original designs for several years, but in 2020 I decided to attempt a glass animal alphabet.

I am making donations of some of the profits from selling the glass alphabet hangings to Longfield Hospice in Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire. It's our local hospice and I want to support the work that they do.

Longfield supports adults in Gloucestershire who are living with life-limiting illness by:

- Providing free specialist care, support and advice from diagnosis to the end of life and bereavement
- Enabling people to live well and die in their place of choice
- Supporting families and carers
- Sharing our specialist knowledge with others
