Fused Glass




'Blue Topography' is a unique sculptural centrepiece by the British artist, Cathryn Shilling.

Created from a multitude of layered glass canes in varying hues of blues, the resulting artwork appears as if it has been woven together. Striking from above, the shadow cast through the piece is a celestial visual feast.

Shilling experiments with layering and fusing glass to produce beautiful one-off sculptures. Her innovative pieces push the material beyond our usual comfort zones. Glass rods are woven together like fabric, mimicking the flexibility and movement of cloth. The apparent frailty of the glass is balanced by the strong dynamic forms and differing levels of light pick out the various strands making up each unique piece.

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