Connemara Blue was founded in 2010 by established glass artist Ben Crow. With a strong focus on unique, contemporary design, and inspired by his love of the Connemara landscape, Ben has created one-of-a-kind art pieces which are valued by collectors worldwide.
Between 2012 and 2016 Ben trained and took on two artists to join his team, Wendy Debrock-Jeffries and Claire Lee.
As well as our own unique pieces, Connemara Blue also offer a bespoke design service, and fused glass workshops for all ages.
This little fused glass suncatcher was inspired by many an evening stroll beside the sea at Mannin Bay, near Ballyconneely, Connemara. The beach there is of finely ground coral, formed by the tide washing ashore of countless centuries.
The coral strand imparts a unique, deep turquoise colour to the shallow tide. The scene we have depicted is of the sheep grazing lazily in the evening glow, while gulls wheel and call overhead. As the sun sinks lower, so all becomes quiet and the flocks settle for the approaching night.
