Angel, 2004. 1.5m x 1.5m
Bonded fused glass/leaded fused and antique glass
This was a piece that I produced as part of my MA degree exhibition
which exploited the process I had developed fusing feathers
inside the glass. With this piece I explored using fusing
in conjunction with traditional leading techniques (the right
hand side) as well as in conjunction with modern bonding techniques
(left hand side) to produce a more contemporary look.
It was my intention to produce a very subtle piece that would
gradually emerge into the space with changing light conditions.
When the sun changes direction and the light shines through
the bubbles created in the glass by the feathers, it starts
to shimmer and sparkle and come to life.
