How it's made

MATERIALS: Fused glass

This Under The Sea panel is made of over 70 individual pieces of Spectrum 96 Art Glass.

The pieces of the pattern are each cut by hand from larger sheets of art glass.

Each piece is individually ground until they all fit together perfectly.

The pieces are then placed in a specialised glass kiln, with a clear layer of glass on top. They are fused at 796ºC to create a single 6mm thick piece of flat glass. This takes around 16 hours.

Once cooled, this flat piece is then burnished with polishing pads.
I then add stringers - thin strips of glass that sit on the surface to add another layer of depth and interest. Again it’s kiln-fused overnight for a fire polish.

At each firing stage, the glass is annealed and cooled overnight for maximum strength and durability.

While the production process is painstaking and lengthy, it's the only way to get the wonderful finished look of glass art.

About this work

I designed the pattern and colour combination of this Under The Sea wall art.

Each of my glass objects are one of a kind - I never do identical objects. Even where the design is similar, they all have a unique colour combination.

During the glass fusing, small air bubbles can appear and become trapped within the glass. This is a natural occurrence that adds to the beauty of handmade glass products.

Care of your glass

Even the strongest glass can break, so please handle your glass art with care.

When needed, dust it with a lint-free cloth, or wipe with a soft, damp cloth. Don't use an abrasive cleaner as this could scratch it.

Because of the handmade nature of glass, please don’t put it in a microwave or dishwasher.

The finished work

This modern glass panel is in my hard edge geometric style, using bold, flat colours with raised lines to emphasise certain sections. The result is a beautiful, watery piece!

On a white wall

Display ideas

Glass art is best displayed on a white wall. Stand-off mounts are used to fix the pieces to the wall. These hold the panel a little way away from the wall, helping the light to reflect back against the glass from behind
