Modern Art Glass ‘Garden Fun’ by Jenny Ayrton
Simply breathtaking! This is a truly stunning and unique piece of modern art glass that beautifully captures the serenity and tranquillity of the garden. Using the highly skilled technique of pouring molten glass into a sand cast and then using wire pieces, the artist carefully and artfully creates a delightful garden scene: an orderly row of vegetables alongside the tools of the trade: a spade, fork and wheelbarrow, and for those more nimble gardeners a rope ladder leads to escape in a treehouse! Quite simply, and exquisitely, evoking that wonderful feeling of the “Good Life” as well as the wonder and playfulness of fun times and childhood adventures.
A moment of time delicately captured within a solid block of modern art glass. A sculptural piece of art that’s certainly unusual and definitely enchanting and would look great in any room, especially in areas where you socialise and entertain. This modern glass art will intrigue and delight your visitors, providing a centrepiece for animated conversation. It deserves pride of place wherever that may be in your home, or in the abode of a loved one, that is if you can possibly bear to part with it!

Jenny’s artistic flair takes its inspiration from her own day to day experiences living in Devon. No day out or short trip is complete for Jenny without capturing a “moment”. Each moment she then takes back to her studio with her, ready to turn it into a molten glass and wire masterpiece.
