Iconic Artwork ‘Her Majesty’ by Sea on Glass
Iconic artwork such as ‘Her Majesty’ is an exemplar of Sea On Glass. It amplifies all that is British.
Queen Elizabeth’s iconic head facing left as that on a postage stamp. The attention to detail on this piece is incredible. The likeness on point. The eye to see and the ability to manipulate beach glass into popular images requires great skill. The mastery in the making of this iconic artwork is truly fascinating.
Iconic Artwork Artists
Sea On Glass is the brainchild of British artists, Anna & Lesley, who have been working successfully together for over 10 years. These resourceful and inventive artists specialise in creating pictures of images using recycled sea glass.
Lesley and Anne are passionate about recycling and the environment and work incredibly hard, scouring the beaches for discarded glass pieces. These are designed and painted with great skill, imagination and humour to create inspirational art.
Their wide range of artwork, which is inspired by iconic British imagery, architecture and animals, is unique. There is nothing quite like them out there!
Based on the north Devon coast, they collect all the glass they use from local beaches in North Devon, UK. Sea glass is the coloured glass “pebbles” that have washed up with the surf. They are also known as “ocean glass” or “beach glass”. They are the by-product of discarded man-made glass objects – bottles, jars etc. – that have found their way into the ocean.
These glass objects are “tumbled” and broken into pieces by the waves, sand and debris, etc. Eventually, they are washed up on the shore, as colourful glass “gems”.
Anne and Lesley’s artwork is incredibly popular and selling fast and across the globe! They were shortlisted for the Royal West of England Academy exhibition in 2015 and were chosen to create a piece for the “Stars on Canvas” 2018 auction.
