Sculptural Art Glass ‘Wedge’ by Jessamy Kelly
Jessamy Kelly’s sculptural art glass ‘Wedge’ is part of her beautiful range of kiln-formed glass art. Created in blue and opaline white glass these sculptures show off a range of translucent and transparent effects. Jessamay uses a pâte de Verre mix of turquoise glass frit and bone china.
The forms resemble wedges of a larger whole, which have been cut up and highly polished.
An intriguing and beautiful sculptural art glass pair that will add the ‘cool-factor’ to your decor
