Spitfire Portrait


Measuring approximately 500 x 1000mm, this portrait of a Spitfire airplane was commissioned by a client who had flown in the actual plane!

A mix of copper foil and etching was used to achieve the detail of the plane, combined with traditional lead work giving a dramatic sense of motion in the work.

Many types and shades of opal, baroque and mouth blown semi-translucent glass types were carefully selected for the plane which was set in sky blue waterglass



Work started!

Accurate cutting and attention to detail was essential to achieve the desired effect on this piece.
