On a visit to my studio a client saw one of my Pebble Trees art panels and really liked it but said that it wouldn’t be right for his kitchen as he wanted a horizontal design across the whole of the kitchen wall.
The design is actually very abstract and so I turned the design sideways and we explored the options of how to enhance, extend and adapt it to make a truly bespoke design to suit his kitchen. The resulting 5 panel glass wall was to be the most prominent feature in his kitchen and it is lit at night to create a stunning focal point.
The colours in ivory and lime green really create a vibrant contrast and sparkling accents within the lime green bands highlight elements within the worktop.
This commission from a client in St Ives was the largest to date and involved a complex multi panel design spanning a whole dividing wall between the hall and dining room.
The panels, each roughly 600 x 600mm and an individual piece of art on their own, were inserted into a neat contemporary white frame and the colourful design is visible from the street when looking down into the property.
The play of sunlight through the panels creates a constantly changing vista.
This bespoke triptych design, which is mounted on tensioned steel cables, has a duel purpose. The three panels provide a screen allowing light to pass through whilst providing both the homeowners and the neighbouring property privacy from each other.
This is also a perfect way to obscure an unwanted building or view without compromising on light.
The three intricate panels are an abstract take on sea, sand and sky.
I was delighted to be commissioned to produce three panels for the award winning Burncoose Nursery stand at the Chelsea Flower Show.
The brief was to create a typical seaside Cornish view looking through a nursery gateway. The Beach panel incorporates my trademark pebbles and texture and the scene follows through with a central textured seascape and paling to sky colours at the top. The panels all contained prefired bespoke frits and inclusions.
As with the St Ives triptych the panels were installed on tensioned steel cables giving a little flexibility during a heart in mouth tight assembling area. Absolutely delighted with the results and the glass helped to win a coveted Silver Gilt award.
Again each individual art panel works perfectly on its own but combined make a stunning focal point.
The Pebble Trees design is particularly versatile in size and colour. The remit from this fellow artist client on The Lizard was to create a very substantial multi panelled installation to compliment the large vertical walls in his renovated pumping station.
The spiral staircase and open mezzanine bedroom above provide the perfect locations from which to view the triptych as the changing light alters the iridised glass colours as you ascend and descend the stairs.
The design uses silver grey glass, natural pebble highlights and various iridised colours throughout the skyline are.
These discerning clients wanted to create a cohesive atmosphere to their home by commissioning multiple panels for several rooms within their beautifully newly built property on the Roseland peninsular.
The resulting triptych kitchen splashback perfectly captures the light and colours of the headland views around St Just and was a labour of love to assemble!
The result I hope you will agree is spellbinding and as there are no kitchen cabinets on the wall it completely owns the space making a striking focal point to the kitchen.
