Artist's description:

This work is a celebration of light: the lightness of the dance, the lightness of the floating frame, hung in the ever-changing light of the day - and the lightness of a dancer, full of movement, captured in an instant.

I drew this dancer quickly by hand, directly onto the raw glass, in ink, and later loaded the ink image with bronze... when I cast the glass, the ink burns away and the bronze sinks wire-like into the molten glass, creating the permanent bronze-cast glass ingot you see here.
Finally, I stained the glass, creating ribbons of colour and emphasising the movement of the dance.

This glass catches and amplifies the light, becoming an eye-catching and very unusual artwork. It's best hung in a window or lighted alcove, where it floats seemingly unsupported within its frame, emphasising lightness and movement.

The frame is part of the artwork - it's constructed from a canvas-less stretcher frame using jeweller's fixings to draw attention to the artwork and to emphase its lightness.

The artwork is supplied mounted and ready-to-hang.
