Shop Announcement:

As the Covid situation gradually eases it's lovely to know that we are now able to browse in shops, galleries and markets again. My Folksy shop will continue to be fully stocked so that you can also buy from the comfort of your own home. However the stock of some items is variable, as they're all made by hand by me and there are only 24 hours in the day! If you’re looking to buy some stained glass that isn’t currently in the shop please do get in touch. I'm also happy to make custom items so please feel free to contact me to discuss your ideas.

All of my glass pieces are made to order and I am reliant on the Royal Mail so please be patient once you’ve placed your order. I aim to despatch glass items within 7 days & cards 3 days (UK only).

If you have any questions about your order, want to send a gift message or need a quick delivery for a special occasion please do contact me. I'll do my best to help.

Description

A stained glass X-Ray Tetra fish made from a selection of clear and textured glass with painted features and a ribbon for hanging.

Size: Approx 25cm wide x 9cm 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.

X is for X-Ray Tetra Fish! This marine creature is the 24th 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. I'm nearing the end, so very soon the complete set will be available here in my shop.

X-Ray Tetra Fish come from the Amazonian coastal waters of South America and they are popular aquarium fish. The strange name comes from the way that the fish's translucent skin allows its spine to be seen. It's certainly an odd creature, but ideally suited to stained glass!

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
