This light shows the standing stones at Stenness. This piece is made using clear glass with applied Frits and enamels. A local craftsman Dave makes the wooden bases to fit each individual glass curves. This one is painted black and rubbed down to a slightly distressed matte look. It is fitted with an LED light, cable and sealed plug.
All my glasswork is produced in Ingaskeldt my studio in Kirkwall and the bases are made in Deerness along the road from me. All made in beautiful Orkney.
Here is a bit of information from Orkney.com about the stones.
These incredible megaliths sit at the start of the Brodgar peninsula, in the middle of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although only four stones remain standing, it’s still possible to get a sense of the scale and importance of the area.
The Standing Stones of Stenness could be the oldest stone circle in the British Isles. There were originally twelve stones, with some standing up to six metres high, focused on a large hearth in the centre.
