This a new piece measuring approximately 17 x 15cm. The gold Lustre Moon , Orange colour background and matte Gold wooden base make this an opulent looking piece. I love the juxtaposition of glitz and the humble cow parsley skeleton weed.
I made this light using clear glass with applied fired Frits, enamels and Gold Lustre.
Once the third and final firing has slumped the flat glass onto a curved mould I give the glass to Dave, the local carpenter who I collaborate with. He will make a base mimicking the exact curve of my glass and achieving a snug fit. The base requires three coats of gold paint which are sanded and smoothed to perfection. The base has an LED Light fitted with a cable and plug.
All my work is produced in my studio Ingaskeldt in beautiful Orkney.
