Here’s a gorgeous and very recent piece that we just finished for a home in Corwen, Denbighshire. As you should be able to tell from the picture above, it’s a piece that’s every bit as scenic as the home it now has a place in. As soon as we saw it in situ, we knew it was going to be one of our all time favourite glass splashbacks!
The background is comprised of a gorgeous, soft gradient which fades from an evocative grassy green colour to a deep blue sky. The tree itself perfectly allows that effect to shine through, as it’s not made from a solid colour or texture. Instead, the tree is crafted out of twisting lines that perfectly create the image of a natural looking tree while allowing the subtleties of the background to still come through. And of course, this Tree of Life is sprouting an array of beautifully coloured leaves in a wide array of complementary colours. You might just see some shades in there that you didn’t expect would work so well, but that’s exactly why the piece bursts so excitingly with colour!
Make sure you don’t miss the details in the piece, as that’s definitely where the life in this particular Tree of Life is strongest. You should be able to spot a peacock nestled in amongst the leaves, perched on a branch with its long tail feathers hung low. Up high, colourful butterflies take flight, and a familiar pet inspects a nearby bee down below. Needless to say, all of those details personalise the piece perfectly as they were bespoke additions with a special meaning to the customer!
