This is a freestanding wave. It is handmade in my studio in Cornwall and is inspired by the fabulous coast surrounding my county. 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 3 times in a specialist kiln for 13 hours each time.
The texture creates a large surface area to allow reflection and sparkle of the natural light. Each piece is hand-cut and created without the use of templates or machinery so no two pieces are identical, they each have their own unique characteristics. This wave is inspired by the magnificent poppy fields which blossom on the North coast of Cornwall each spring, areas such as Polly Joke, Penrice and Crantock.
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 cm 9cm tall and approx. 23 cm wide and is signed by Claire Harris.
