Beach view from Sandgate


I've just finished this triptych based on the view from our flat in Sandgate. This is the first large piece of fused glass I've made since getting my new Nabertherm 75 kiln, each piece is 20 x 40 cm so I could only fit two panels in the kiln for each firing. The final firing was a tack fuse so that the top layer of waves, boats and pebbles on the beach are raised and give texture to the piece. On the whole I'm really pleased with the way this turned out, as usual I can see bits I would do differently next time - all part of the learning process...
