The Natures Umbrella glass wall panel by Cathy Shepherd is inspired by sunlight glistening off the splashing waves of the ocean. Iridescent blues, gold, and greens strands and opaque accents are set upon transparent aqua and clear glass and are fully fused in a flow design. The artist personally creates dichroic glass nuggets, dichroic swirls, glass swirls and frits, then layers them on top and tack-fuses them to the panel for a vibrant, textured look. The glass panel is mounted on a hand-brushed aluminum sheet with standoffs. Back is wired for easy hanging.
Each glass panel in this style is handcrafted to order. Cathy Shepherd fuses a collage of dynamic colors and shapes cut from iridescent transparent glass, layered together with dichroics cut into mosaics, blending in blown and fused glass shards for more visual energy. Cathy strives to create art that is beyond her expectations, and those of her audience, leaving those who truly appreciate her art with an acclaimed “wow factor” that has gained national attention in the art world.
Custom commissioned projects are welcome, please call for details.
*Please note: each wall panel is a custom crafted work of art. Due to the handcrafted nature of production, some variation in color and glass detail placement is to be expected.
