North Sea Skin

Kiln formed glass
10.5 H x 109 W x 25 D cm

Admiring coast and sea on a journey to the Orkney Islands, it was fascinating to learn of and encounter the phenomenal characteristics of the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean as merging. Caused by varying depths and underlying movement, awake and lively patterns rise, blend and contrast a casual, neighbouring view.
