Free standing glass curve featuring the cliffs at Yesnaby, Orkney
The Cliffs at Yesnaby, Orkney Freestanding Curve
I made The Cliffs at Yesnaby using clear glass with applied enamels and silverstain. The glass measures approximately 30 x 14 cm.
Yesnaby is an area in Sandwick, on the west coast of Orkney Mainland, Scotland, south of Skara Brae. It is renowned for its spectacular Old Red Sandstone coastal cliff scenery which includes sea stacks, blowholes, geos and frequently boiling seas.
Most folk visiting Orkney will take a trip to see the wild landscape and seas at Yesnaby. I find it beautiful, breathtaking and threatening all at once.
In this piece I show a small section of the lands end and the crashing sea waves painted in separate layers of enamels and silverstain that resulted in 4 x separate firings.
This is a one off piece although the scene is a subject I will happily return to again.
