This latest stunning stained glass piece was created and named “Life’s Lights” something for everyone.
Glass and construction
I used 2 types of iridescent glass, both types of glass work completely different from each other in different light sources throughout the day and night. Constantly changing, therefore, brings the panel to life using the 2 types of glass. The glass working in harmony with each other too.
Iridescent glass displays a spectrum of colours that shimmer and change as the observer position changes. Using artificial lighting and natural light against different backgrounds and positioning.
The construction was using the traditional copper foiling method. I hand cut the glass to my design there after, followed by individually wrapping each piece of glass in copper foil and then soldered.
I then cleaned and polished the soldering to give a silvery finishing look.
The design is free flowing with all the twists and turns capturing the beautiful reflection along with movement and energy using both types of iridescent glass. As for the meaning of the design, well I am not going to say anything purely to allow the viewer to make their own decisions in what they see and want to see.
“Life’s Lights” is a piece created not only just for the beauty to be looked at on the surface but, also for the beauty from within this piece has come alive within the perspective of changing light, colours, reflection, movement and energy also depth along with thought thinking, this piece is alive and living…a journey for all to enjoy and embrace in mind, spirit and soul.
