This sculpture has been handmade on the Isles of Scilly by local artist Oriel Hicks, using fused glass. The glass is set into a wooden base (handmade in Cornwall by Stuart Mackin). The sculpture features the bright colours of the pilot gigs as they race in the waves.
The images give an idea of how the sculpture will look but each one is uniquely created and may differ in colour and shape to the one shown. If you have a particular colour preference, please make this known at the payment stage. Please allow up to two weeks for the sculpture to be specially made and sent out to you.
Oriel has worked with glass as a medium for thirty years and is inspired by the unique light, colour and natural environment of her island home. She experiments with many different techniques and processes including Tiffany, traditional leaded lights, etching and fused glass and her work is constantly evolving.
