Fused Glass Ocean Waves SUNcatcher

Fused glass ocean waves suncatcher

When you live on a tiny island like Okinawa, you can see the water from almost anywhere. This inspires the way you live and definitely what you create. This fused glass sun catcher is created from organic layers of many shades of blue for an abstract reminder of the ocean the surrounds us.

To make each glass wave, I carefully cut and arrange layers of transparent sheet glass in many cool shades of blue. The glass ocean is then heated in the kiln to 1375 degF to create a textured finish. Like any wave, each one is unique.
