A special commemorative piece


The brief was to incorporate the children’s names and the motifs of tear drops and butterflies. The clients chose the glass and we tried to incorporate the children’s birth stone colours.

I decided on a free flowing shape edged with bubbles and with a sense of movement. The clients decided on a flow of stars and butterflies running through the panel and they love colour (I understand their house is very colourful and original!)

Firstly I cut the glass, then painted the design, I initially wanted the paint work to be subtle but it was getting lost in the streaky cathedral glass so I went

I really hope that the family like the piece and that it honours the memory of the children and helps them move into the future.


Please excuse my photographs, my camera seems to be loosing the ability to focus!
