Bird Swing

When my son was small, I would take him to the Wallace Collection to look at the armour. To get to the armour collection we would have to walk through a room of French late-Rococo paintings. Maybe it’s because the chandelier has a French frame, or because of the colours of the glass, but while making it, I kept thinking of Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s painting ‘The Swing’. Bird Swing has been created from a mix of hand cut and cast Bullseye, Dichroic, antique and sea glass.
