This contemporary handcrafted artwork is created using photographs that are permanently embedded onto
the surface of a fused glass panel. The piece is then encased in a white box frame, ready for hanging on a wall.
There are two options available.
a). 25 small images (3.3 x 2.3cm each) presented in five rows of five; Images either all colour or all black & white; Orientation all landscape or all portrait.
b). 12 larger images (5.5 x 3.5cm each) presented in four rows of three; Images either all colour or all black & white; Orientation all landscape or all portrait.
The main canvas is a vibrant white glass with a veil of bubbles embedded within. This provides a striking backdrop for the individual glass frames that surround the images themselves. Whilst melted into the glass, each frame appears to float on its surface.
The glass frames are white with a grey surround. Alternative outer colours can be commissioned by arrangement.
Standard white & grey frames
Alternative white & red frames
Size & weight
The external size of the piece is 41cm x 41cm square and it is 3 cm deep. The weight of the overall piece is nearly 4 kg.
The glass piece is framed using a white box frame. An alternative oak style frame is possible by arrangement.
The piece hangs as a conventional framed picture, from a nail secured in the wall. The choice of wall fixing should take into account the wall construction and weight of the piece.

Important information to note
Where appropriate, it is the responsibility of the client to obtain permission for use (from the owner) of any materials provided. It will be assumed that this permission has been granted on receipt of the photographs.
Any digital images provided that are not of a high enough quality, will not be used and the artist will request a replacement.
Any material considered in conflict with the artist’s integrity (e.g. are inappropriate or obscene) will not be used. If a suitable replacement cannot be found, the artist has the right to refuse to continue with the work.
This is a handcrafted artwork rather than factory made article. Therefore there will be variations between pieces and artistic license applied to the design.
- The images on the glass will be transparent and as a consequence they will not appear as bold as the original.
- Due to the processes used, it is likely that the final colours of the images will vary from the original photograph.
- As part of the design process Emily may crop and/or sharpened the images to ensure maximum impact is achieved for the piece.
- Due to the nature of the material and techniques used, there may be bubbles and minor blemishes within the imagery and glass. The artist often has to remake the piece before she is happy with it and will not release it unless she feels it is of a high enough quality.
Timescales are given as an estimate. If there are any unforeseen events that may affect delivery times, Emily will inform you immediately.
