Sea of glass

Hand-blown glass

The beauty lies within the formation of the schooling fish as they synchronise their swimming, moving together at the same speed and direction. The perfectly coordinated movements help them defend against predators while at the same time making foraging safer for these more vulnerable species. 

This hand-blown glass piece has been created from the raw material of sand to create an underwater seascape. It is tribute to our marine life, capturing the diffused light beneath our deep blue ocean. Layers of coloured glass have been cut away to reveal almost spherical bubbles that portray a slow upward drift, which reflects the surroundings.
