Clovis Hoard




H 70 cm W 120 cm D 14 cm


Glass with wood and steel




'Clovis Hoard’ is a unique wall mounted glass sculptural installation by the British artist, James Devereux. Each component is displayed upon the lacquered wooden board and held in place with metal mounting brackets.

Monolithic in presence, the Clovis Collection is the result of laboured experiments by the artist to be able to literally chip the glass like stone. A blow too hard would simply shatter the piece, too light a tap would crush the surface. After perfecting this unusual technique, the results are breathtaking, smooth lines are juxtaposed with the haphazard. After flame polishing, these meandering edges are not sharp despite their appearance but smooth to the touch.

The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
