Tim Rawlinson

Mosaic Yellow


This work utilises the Venetian technique known as ice glass. This is a decorative effect that causes the surface of the glass to resemble cracked ice. This is achieved by repeatedly plunging a piece of hot glass into cold water and withdrawing it quickly. The thermal shock creates fissures in the surface, and these impart a frosted appearance after the glass has been reheated.

The surface texture distorts and fragments the colours within the piece. Tim’s initial inspiration were the large floor mosaics that he saw on a trip to Pompeii.
