Space Travel

This are two panels about 250mm square that i did for friends in Tortosa,Spain.They will be side by side in a bathroom window facing west.They are sandblasted, painted and have some silver stain.Think i put too many spaceships in,it looks a bit crowded!You can view more work at Lustrousglass.com

Sunburst at the Lantern Centre

This is my latest set of panels, a 26 panel set around three sides of the raised roof of the meeting room in the Lantern Centre,a multicultural meeting place which aims to bridge current cultural and religious differences in the world. The room is used for meetings,theatre ,cinema screenings,poetry readings,in fact all kinds of creative comings together. The panels took about 7 weeks give or take.they measure 875mm by 500mm.Luckily all the windows were the same. The glass is different kinds,Cathedral,Baroque,Kokomo,flat,rippled.Even some bits of super expensive art glass.The room faces west so the sun sets right through the end four panels.It throws coloured reflections all over the end wall in the evening and onto the side wall during the day ,effective on the pale walls.You can view more work at Lustrousglass.com.
