Unique Kiln Fused Glass - Wall Mounted
I have a bit of a fascination with snakes, the beauty of their skin, their slithering and undulating movement; and with eels, and fish in general, the way they suddenly turn in the water, flashing light and colour. So I made a series of works about that, of which ‘Just Hatched’ is one. Although based on an eel, it’s not a representation of a real creature of course, just about something primal bursting through the water towards you.
I used dozens of small pieces of coloured glasses to denote the scales, with shards of dichroic glass for the teeth, so that they flash through the ‘water’. And tiny silver flakes give flashes of light too.
