Portfolio Fractured light - Dearly beloved


The words “dearly beloved” are traditionally heard at the beginning of weddings and funerals, as friends and families gather to celebrate or mourn or both.

We yearn for our beloved and our beloved long for us. Each of us is inextricably linked to the others, the familiar words underscoring what binds us together.

The texture of the "Fractured light" suncatchers make them glow and sparkle when bathed in light.

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.
