Description

This long curve measures approximately 40 x 10 cm and is made using clear glass.

I cut the shape from sheet glass. Each piece is individually made and hand painted with high and low fire enamels.

The design requires 4 separate firings to achieve the depth of colour, detail and texture.

The little abandoned cottage on the beach in the bay must have had a fantastic sea view but borne the brunt of the worst weather.

Here’s what Wikipedia say

Grimness is a cliff-girt headland on the island of South Ronaldsay, in the Orkney archipelago of Scotland. It is located between Honeysgeo and Skipi Geo and rises to a height of 34 metres above sea level. There is a trig point at the summit. The name is from the Old Norse and means Grim’s headland.[1][2] There are various small skerries offshore including Skerrilee, Scarf Taing, The Keys, Grey Chair, Out Hillock, Broddebb and Stack of Kame. There is a small geo (inlet) in the southern facing cliff known as Sheep Bight. There is a single farm called Head.
