Kopis in Silver I


Limited Edition of 10


H 84 cm W 16 cm D 16 cm


Glass with silver leaf




'Kopis in Silver I' is a unique glass sculpture by the British artist, James Devereux. 

With 2019 marking 20 years of Devereux's studio practice, the Kopis art works are a celebration of these two creative decades. With either silver or gold inclusions, both are a limited edition of just 10 per precious metal.

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.
