Shoal is a sculpture created from engraved glass elements which are suspended from wires in front of a rose window in a former chapel. The large window needed some colour, but it seemed inappropriate to use stained glass in a building which has been converted to a home. This more sculptural solution refers back to stained glass, while freeing the glass from the constraints of the space. Shoal formed the centrepiece in my 2010 exhibiton “Life on Mars, Unweaving the rainbow” in Frome.
