This beautiful piece of art is representative of my feelings and emotions through Covid lockdown and isolation. I decided to channel my emotions into creating something and this is the result. I’ve called it Lockdown.
This piece explores the differences of each day, with the soft, glossy glass representing the joy in each day – Happy, smiles, children having fun, getting 5 minutes to myself, drinking a coffee while it’s still hot, sunny days, being healthy, feeling grateful.
And the jagged, crunchy parts represent the difficult parts of the day – Tiredness, sadness, anger, feeling everything is too much, children not listening, more mess to clean up, the pure monotony of every day, frustration, anxiety, worry, not feeling good enough.
That is what it means to me, it might mean something entirely different to you!
This is made using 2 layers of clear glass, with beautiful coloured glass of various types and lengths on top. Overall thickness is 9mm in places with colour and 6mm where there is no colour. Each panel is totally unique. It measures approximately 20cm high by 7cm wide and can be hung vertically or horizontally.
Standoffs allow the panel to sit proud of the wall by around 4cm. They need to be drilled into a wall to be secured. The glass then sits within the clamps. Full instructions and wall plugs, screws etc are provided, if this option is chosen.
If choosing the hanging optoon. two holes will be drilled in each corner and you have a choice of hanging materials from ribbon or coloured chain.
The photos unfortunately don’t do this justice!
If you’d like a different combination of colours, please leave a note at checkout or email me to discuss.
Suitable for indoor or outside use, fused glass doesn’t fade in the sun and is weatherproof (I do advise to protect it from the wind).
