'Clifden Scene' - Fused Glass Wall Panel
The wall panels I make in this series are all unique, but are loosely based on the view from my house.
Apart from rolling green fields and the stone wall, the panel also features the colourful, little thin houses so often found in Connemara's seaside villages, as well as two Galway Hooker sailing boats. The Hooker, characterised by its single mast and three deep red sails, was the traditional working boat of Galway and Connemara. It transported people, livestock, turf and supplies to, from and between the islands. Of late, the Hooker is experiencing a revival, and superbly renovated examples are frequently seen taking part in regattas here.
This little piece of Connemara is supplied, ready to wall mount, with its brushed-chrome metal fittings. Instructions for hanging your panel are supplied!
