This is a freestanding wave. It is handmade in Claire's studio in Cornwall and is inspired by the fabulous coast surrounding Cornwall. Each piece is created using layers of thin coloured bullseye glass with crushed and powdered glass to create detail and texture. It has been fused twice in a specialist kiln for 13 hours each time.
The image depicts the tidal Island of St Micheal’s Mount in Mount’s Bay which is linked to Marazion at low tide by the cobbled causeway.
The transparent glass allows light to pass through and the slim footprint allows the glass to be displayed on a narrow shelf as well as windowsills. Candles can be lit behind the glass to create a lovely ambience.
It is 9cm tall and approx 23 cm wide. The wave is signed.
