Borrowed Light

This large panel of stained and leaded glass was commissioned by a client in Cambridge to integrate the space between the existing living room and a new build kitchen extension.  The house was a traditional 1930s house and the brief was to use stained glass to integrate the old traditional building and the new kitchen extension.  The piece contains three large fused glass panels with hand cut copper fish suspended in the glass.  The fish flow and swim across the piece.   The fused glass gives a modern feel to the piece whilst being leaded together using traditional techniques.  I love the colours in this piece and being placed in borrowed lights above the existing door frames allows the light floods through these panels and casts amazing coloured light into the new kitchen extension.
