Stormy Seas

A pun: a rolling prayer wheel,
stormy waves rolling perpetually,
viewed up or down,
based on a 1950s handwriting
exercise for the letter c,
endured learning dip pen
‘joined-up writing’.

H 5cm, W 5cm, D 5cm

Blown aqua glass overlaid on
clear lead crystal, cut, polished,
drill and wheel engraved 2008.

As an engraver, I am interested
in the marks of specific wheels
on the glass surface and the
possibilities of those marks
within the glass as they reflect
and refract.
