This has to be one of our absolute favourite panels to create. A love story...a spurned mermaid, stormy Ceredigion skies and a pair of lovers ready to sail away...

When we were approached to create a fabulous mystical mermaid panel, we were ecstatic! We knew that this would be a fantastic opportunity to use some really strong colours, unusual glasses and a variety of techniques including lots of hand painted work and sand blasting.
As usual, our process begins with lots of sketches and scribbles inspired by the client's own artwork, and from this we create a full size cutting pattern. Choosing the glass was NOT easy...we were spoilt for choice and had so many amazing possibilities to choose from!
Making the panel itself was not without drama...turning over a 5 foot panel that hasn't yet been cemented for strength was a hair raising exercise which needed careful thought and preperation.
This panel was encapsulated to create a 'triple' glazed unit, and fitted into the tattoo parlour's front door like a glove.
