How it's made

MATERIALS: Fused glass

The Abundance Triptych round art glass sculpture is made of approx 270 individual pieces of Oceanside Art Glass, using over 40 different colours.

The pieces of the pattern are each cut by hand from larger sheets of art glass.

Each piece is individually ground until they all fit together perfectly.

The pieces are then placed in a specialised glass kiln, with a clear layer of glass on top. They are fused at 800ºC to create a single 6mm thick piece of flat glass. This takes around 16 hours.

Once cooled, this flat piece is then burnished with polishing pads.

At each of the overnight firing stages, the glass is annealed and cooled for a minimum of 12 hours each for maximum strength and durability.

While the production process is painstaking and lengthy, it's the only way to get the wonderful finished look of glass art.

Each stand is custom-made for the artwork.
The stands are constructed of mild steel and finished with an industrial powder coating.

About this work

I designed the pattern and colour scheme of The Abundance glass art set.

Each of my glass objects are one of a kind - I never do identical objects. Even where the designs are related, they all have a completely unique colour combination.

During the glass fusing, small air bubbles can appear and become trapped within the glass. This is a natural occurrence that adds to the beauty of handmade glass art.

Care of your glass

Even the strongest glass can break, so please handle your glass art with care.

When needed, dust it with a lint-free cloth, or wipe with a soft, damp cloth. Don't use an abrasive cleaner as this could scratch it.

When moving the piece, please carry the stand and disc separately, so they don't bang together.

The final work

With flowers and sunlight

Abundance cries out for fresh flowers put into the mix … it makes the whole work look even larger and more full.

Glass works best where the light can bounce off the surface and fill the room. On a white wall, the areas of transparent glass reveal their true colours.

A single miniature on a stand gives a surge of much-needed colour for the small space or desk as a personal gift to yourself or loved one. Stands come with a choice of three sizes to suit your space and requirements.
