Glass Wall Artwork ‘Swimming Mackerel’ by Dreya Bennet
Dreya Bennet’s ‘Swimming Mackerel’ is a playful piece of glass wall artwork that will bring a smile to anyone’s lips!
The colours of the ocean and the fish are captured perfectly in this unique handmade fused glass wall artwork. The swimming mackerel is block mounted and ready to hang in your hallway, living room or dining room.
N.B. The image shown is an example of the series. Each swimming mackerel is lovingly handcrafted in Newquay Cornwall and therefore unique. No two are the same.
Glass Wall Artwork Artist
Dreya was a keen surfer in her teens, which developed further when she discovered the thrill of kitesurfing. Her incredible enthusiasm and ability led Dreya to compete on the world circuit achieving a ranking of World no. 3! She also set a world record by kitesurfing from Cornwall to Ireland (under maiden name Wharry) – an accomplished lady indeed!
Glasswork came into Dreya’s life by accident while studying at Falmouth art college. She instantly fell in love with the look and the process of working with glass. This led to a specialism in Architectural Stained Glass at Swansea. Since retiring from competitive sport, glass art has become Dreya’s focus and passion. She has produced many stunning pieces including this sea glass wall art.
“The colour of glass, its reflections and translucent quality instantly captured my heart. Glass has a similar quality to water. It is enigmatic, you can look at it or through it. It is there and not there and can create a potent visual effect, either opulent or subtle. I love the challenge of designing for different buildings, interiors and people, whether a large architectural piece or an intensely personal small piece”.
