Roger Tye Glass Dish, Green, Amethyst cased
"Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass, Stains", from Shelley’s ‘Adonais’
The art of calligraphy is transformed into a dynamic abstract form when Peter Furlonger applies it to sculptural glass. His exceptional work involves engraving textured lettering onto three-dimensional glass using a sand-blasting technique.
Work by Furlonger is highly sought after by collectors and is held in the Victoria & Albert Museum, the National Museum of Scotland, Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, and North Lands Creative Glass, Caithness and by the British Glass Foundation.
