Zena, the beloved pharaoh hound of my dearest friend Maureen Cahill, owner of the Glass Artists’ Gallery in Glebe (Australia’s foremost contemporary glass gallery), has turned twelve. To celebrate Maureen commissioned me to design and create some celebratory glass coasters for Zena to give to her personal friends.
I created two designs – one with Zena’s profile and the other picturing Zena in her famous sphinx pose (see Zena’s picture below, taken few years ago). The glass coasters have been created with coloured glass powders and fused in the kiln. Afterwards, the coasters have been engraved to highlight Zena’s profile and Zena’s name has been sandblasted on the glass.
And below, my studio assistant Darra gives his seal of approval on the consignment.
