Goldfinches and Teasels
By Sandra Young
Solid lamp worked glass, made with clear and coloured borosilicate glass rods manipulated in the flame with the use of hand tools. Lustre is then hand painted on and fired in the kiln to finish the colouring. A glass dome and wooden base is supplied.
Artists statement regarding the artwork
‘Goldfinches’ is another addition to my British Birds series. I regularly see the goldfinches on the teasels in my garden and love to try to capture a sculptural image of them. This item now has another teasel behind the finches to improve the strength of the work.
