Playing with the paisley pattern and the idea of the elephant having a tasseled blanket laid over it's back. The tassels are cast glass so add dimension to the sculpture as well as edging the blanket detail.

Full description

A paisley patterned blanket covers this little elephants back, with tasseled edge.

This elephant is made from one piece of chunky 10mm thick clear float glass that has been cut to shape using a water jet cutting machine.

It has then been screen-printed by hand in this paisley blanket design using your choice of coloured glass enamel, which are fired into place making them waterproof and resistant to sunlight. All my kiln-fired pieces are carefully digitally annealed and cooled for strength and safety.

The tassels are cast separately using glass powders and can be the same colour as the print or different.

Finally a small clear glass base is fused onto the elephants feet for stability and it is gift boxed with a story card.

It measures -

Height - 140mm / 5 1/2 inches

Width - 200mm / 7 7/8 inches

Depth - 20mm / 3/4 inch

Weight - 375g / 13.2oz

The image above is an example, as each Elephant is unique, due to the making process.

Elephants are also available as brooches and cufflinks in my shop collections.

This piece is unique, designed and made by me in my studio in Glasgow, Scotland.
