This piece measures 26 x 9 cm approximately. The base is fired with a purple/heather colour and the sky is light blue/green.
I made this using clear glass and kiln fired the glass with Frits and enamels.
The stones are arranged as they do in the field.
Dating back from 2,500 to 2,000 BC, the stone ring was built in a true circle, 104 metres wide and originally contained sixty megaliths; today only twenty-seven of these stones remain.
The reason for the creation of the Ring of Brodgar, which would have been a considerable amount of work in that time, is not known for sure, perhaps as an astronomical observatory, religious shrine or rituals. Visit Scotland Website
All my work is made in my studio Ingaskeldt in beautiful Orkney.
