Shipping forecast

The Scottish Glass Society made a call out for artwork on the theme of The Shipping Forecast. One of the trickiest issues was the strict requirement of it fitting within a 25 cm cube. After a lot of struggeling I managed to create ‘Storm Raiders’ on the vikings, with engraving of words from the shipping forecst translated into Scottish Gael, Danish, Finnish, Faeroese, Icelandic and Inuit representing just some of the places the vikings went. It was cast glass, water jet, stained glass and driftwood with a decal. The reverse showing the viking ship sneeking through the mist.
