A composition of mosaics made up of 6 panels which are also available individually if you dare to split the flock. (¶250 each, see all pictures and please send me a message if you would like one of them) I live near the Somerset Levels and visit the starling murmurations when I can. I am a member of the Somerset Crafts gallery where much of my work is displayed, each year we have a starling exhibition inspired by what I can only describe as the Greatest Show on Earth! What I find so thrilling is not just the beauty of watching them but also the sound as they pass by overhead. The flutter of thousands of wings. It sounds almost like white noise. So here I present to you “Beautiful Black Clouds”. Each bird hand cut from iridescent black glass tile and each part of the sky hand cut from coloured glass tile. The dimensions are for all the panels together with little space between as shown. They can be hung close together like this or with more space between them. Each panel is 35cm width x 25cm height.
