We don’t often lift the curtains on the work that goes on behind the scenes, but the six panels Lisa created for the Swansea Christmas procession provided the perfect opportunity for a little bit of extra documentation. Naturally, since we had the pictures on hand, we wanted to show you a little bit of what’s involved in the creation of our bespoke glass art.

Lisa adds detail to the daffodils, working powders like paint!

Here, you can see Lisa working on a row of daffodils, crafting a very realistic and beautiful image with a steady hand of enamel powder. The many kinds of enamel that we use form the basis of most pieces, and can be used to create everything from solid colour bases all the way to the most intricate designs. Did you know that we source our enamel powders from all across the world? For example, our white enamels come all the way from Japan and it actually became harder to source it after the tsunami that struck the coast in 2011.

We’ve also included images of different panels that didn’t make an appearance in our previous blog. For example, the piece that Lisa is laying down and adjusting on top of the white kiln bed is a stunning piece meant to represent the layers of the earth, with all its many textures, colours and shapes.

Take a look through the included images at the top, and you might just spot something that inspires your very own fused glass design – in which case, you know where to find us!
