Inspired by wild flowers growing along the fence lines of the Orkney fields

Each piece of glass is unique, different although similar to others in the range. I find it impossible to recreate an image exactly, I tend to wander off with new colours and shapes. 


 The coloured pieces of glass are all cut by hand and placed together like a collage. The glass is then put into the kiln and heated to around 1400f which bonds all the pieces together. Sometimes the glass is put into the kiln a second or even third time depending on the finish I'm looking for. This all takes time, around 12hrs per firing, but its a thrill each time I open the kiln to see if the glass has behaved as I'd expected.


These pieces are approx 25cm by 15cm but sizes and shapes do differ. 


I will send a pic of what I have in stock when you order so that you can choose.
