‘Patchwork Stripes’ is a development from a past collection ‘Stripes’. It is made from sheet glass and 1mm glass stringers, creating a linear design, the fused glass is then cut into squares and rearranged into an abstract pattern. This process involves multiple kiln firings, but I think that the end result is worth it.
In this particular artwork I have replaced some of the squares with textured iridescent glass, this offsets the multi colours beautifully with a shimmer on the surface. The transmitted light and shadows through this angled artwork is stunning and becomes an integral part of the piece.

Clean with window cleaner spray and kitchen roll. It can also be washed carefully in Luke warm soapy water.
This artwork is not dishwasher safe.
I have wanted to experiment with this process for quite a few years now, but I never had the free studio time to do so. Even though it has been a difficult this year with the pandemic, the one thing that it has gave me is more time to play with new techniques and designs. This is the start of a new collection, I have lots of ideas of how I can push this process further in my artworks.
