Each morning before I head into my studio, I head to my local beach with my two dogs, to see what gifts the ocean has left for me overnight. Much of my work is inspired by the depths and movement of the ocean and glass represents water beautifully.
Our handmade glass waves are made from layered turquoise, deep blue and crystal clear glass, with a drop of aqua green and dichroic flakes to give it that sparkle. Fired in a glass kiln over three days, the glass wave is then mounted on to a unique organic piece of driftwood found on the coastal beaches of Ireland. We dry out our driftwood naturally over a period of up to two years before it is carefully carved by hand, we felt the base of the wood, the glass is then moulded into the wood , glued and left to sit overnight, we then use organic recycled candle wax to seal the wood, and give it a slight aromatic scent.
Ideal gift for any surfers out there...
The image shown is the sculpture that you will receive, as each wave sculpture is handmade and therefore totally unique along with the unique piece of driftwood.
This piece of driftwood was found on a deserted beach in Co.Wexford in 2020.
