Glass Panels ‘Leaves Light’ by Tim Carter
Tim Carter has an array of glorious glass panels. Leaves is no exception. Two falling leaves are engraved in detail onto the glass. A larger leaf outline serves as a background upon the transparent glass panel. Creating depth to the piece. Tim’s final vision for the piece is executed perfectly with illumination from the base which brings the glass alive.
The thick float glass refracts the green, blue colour spectrum of white light, resultant from the iron content of the glass. This gives a beautiful teal appearance to the glass edge and engraving.
The glass panels base is available in a choice of wood, Oak, Tulip/Poplar or Ash.
Lighting: 12 volt LED lighting, UK and International plug-in power supply (LED driver).
