Scotland Glass Sculpture ‘Mind Topography ‘ by Jessamy Kelly
Jessamy Kelly’s Scotland glass sculpture features swirls of deep blue and turquoise shades. The shape of Scotland is hand-cut from kiln cast glass. Its rugged coastline is captured beautifully in glass form. Ceramic aggregates are scattered through the north and south of the country, lending lustre and interest.
This gorgeous sculpture would make a great centrepiece on a side table or placed on a stand to display on a shelf or mantelpiece.
Perfect for lovers of glass at and Scotland!
