Fractured light - A new day
Colours for just their inherent beauty. They don't necessarily have to be in any particular form or arranged into a recognizable image. Shine sunlight through multiple hues and it is breathtaking and blissful.
The texture of the "Fractured light" suncatchers make them glow and sparkle when bathed in light.
You can read about my inspiration for this piece in my blog here.
They come wired and ready to hang.
I suggest that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand.
Putting it in the microwave is not recommended.
How it was created: The V-shaped glass hanging loops are made and fused separately first. All the coloured glass pieces have been cut by hand using tile nippers. The fractured glass pieces are created by laying a piece of clear glass on the kiln shelf and topping it with varied colours of the transparent glass pieces. The glass hanging loops are positioned at the top, under the clear sheet and everything is fused together into one magnificent piece.
My process often adds bubbles in the glass and no piece is perfectly round or square, adding to its appeal.
Fusing glass, often in several layers, results in items that may seem surprisingly heavy when first unpacked.
