This latest piece of handmade fused glass art comes from a beautiful home in the equally scenic village of Stoke Gifford, Bristol. The design is a take on our classic Tree of Life, of course, but with plenty of changes and customisations that make full use of our completely bespoke process. All the elements of the piece add up to make for a splashback that’s uniquely tailored to match both the kitchen surrounding it and the customers who ordered the glass. We just had to feature it for today’s blog!
The background is a verdant green and provides a subtly textured base for the tree itself, which branches out to form a big heart! Hand cut leaves featuring carefully chosen complementary colours of all kinds really add a splash of colour to the space.
As with all of our Tree of Life designs, there are plenty of little details to be found no matter where you look. The customers wanted to include a few specific things to personalise the design, and so Lisa made sure to include them. You’ll be able to spot a couple of birds, with a red breasted robin perched in the branches up top, and a pheasant down below in the flowers and grass.
If you look behind the tree, you should be able to make out a colourful hot air balloon rising, and a bumblebee buzzing about while a climbing rose makes its way up the trunk. The flower was an addition based on another piece that Lisa had made which the customers loved, and we think that it makes for the perfect finishing touch.
