Earth Sea and Sky
Monmouth Beach in Lyme Regis.....This is the Ammonite pavement.
It is humbling to think that these creatures lived in the sea millions of years ago yet we can see their ghostly images and hold something so ancient in our hands
...we are just visitors here for a brief time
This lovely glass panel contains a lot of texture. It has chunks of amber coloured glass tack fused for soft raised areas as well as turquoise and sienna glass shapes.
I have made little glass nuggets to look like pebbles and added frit for even more texture.
Fossils have been drawn with powdered glass and more chunky frit added at the top of the piece to give a textured top edge.
