Art Glass Panel ‘Just a Sliver Please – To Be Beside The Seaside’ by Amanda Charles
Feel the warmth presented by this beautiful art glass panel. This piece is inspired by Amanda’s own childhood memories of holidays spent on the south coast of England. The deep blue of the sea gives way to the crimson sunset. The spectacle that was the sunset over Bournemouth Beach. The colours combine to create a mesmerising ‘painting’ in glass form.
This art glass panel was made by meticulously cutting hundreds of pieces of glass and painstakingly fitting them precisely together.
Art Glass Panel Artist
Amanda Charles began her stellar glass journey by training in ceramics and glass at the University of Hertfordshire. She became fascinated by the versatility of glass and the amazing number of ways to create beautiful art.
Amanda Charles’s favourite modus operandi is working with kiln-formed glass. Precise heat control enables her to stack opalescent, transparent and dichroic glass. This creates vibrancy, geometry and very tactile 3D texture. It almost invites the viewer to reach out and touch the art. The elaborate detail of her pieces creates both linear and non-linear compositions – a ‘harmonic dissonance’.
Layers of glass complement or contrast with each other to create a wonderful divergence between light absorption and reflection in intricate detail and pattern. A style that pays homage to the simplicity of Bauhaus Modernism and the complexity of non-representational Abstract Expressionism.
Her artistic style and technique are constantly evolving as she continues to experiment with the marvellous medium of glass.
