Art Glass Platter

Created by Sarinda Jones
A new body of work created from a glass art residency in the Highlands, 10 years ago. This Kilnformed glass piece is titled "Gorse" and is irregular in shape with a texture on the underside. What is Gorse? Common Gorse, Ulex europaeus: "Tough Love"

Gorse, or furze, lurks in the background of Scotland landscape novels, subsisting on the wild heath, stalwart, and unnoticed. Like a character from Thomas Hardy, its prickly exterior encloses a thing of beauty, with a hint of the exotic. In still weather, gorse sends out a scent of coconut, from January until December.

Each work is created uniquely for you and there will be some variations in each piece.
