Dreya Glass

Small Tidal Wave

£150.00

Unique handmade fused glass round tidal wave inspired by the moons influence on our sea with the full moon and the new moon both represented . Each wave is lovingly crafted in Newquay Cornwall. 

 

The sea and its different moods have always been in my life. Especially its sound, which can be carried many miles inland on the wind, it is a constant background noise to life in Cornwall.  The sea is all encompassing its colour, sounds and smell, its reflections, translucent quality and constant movement can hold your attention like nothing else. To me glass has a similar quality to water and is the perfect medium to express it. It is enigmatic you can look at it, or through it. It is there and not there.

 

I have tried to show the many different colours and moods the sea has though starting with a clear glass  as the sea itself it is clear. Its colours come from the reflection of the sky and seeing the sand and rocks though the water. So I have used frits and enamels to add those colours. I have deliberately mounted the waves  on the front of the frame so that they twinkle at you and change as you or the sun passes over or past the work the same way the sea changes constantly throughout the day.

 

I have also mounted my wave so that it appears as if floating in front of the frame so they cast a shadow and reflection into the back of the frame just as the sea does.

 

No two waves are ever the same.
