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.
