finished lightcatchers - shifting tides

I realised a couple of days ago that while I shared my thought process and experimentation involved with creating the textured lightcatchers, I hadn't shared the finished result, so here it is - one of the three anyway!  You can find the others here and here

This is the larger of the two sea inspired pieces, measuring 26 cm by 12cm.  
Petal has appointed herself the official master of the names, and this one has been dubbed 'shifting tides' - I'm not sure if she's using a thesaurus but she is naturally very poetic - I'll never forget her telling her brother to "bridle thy tongue" when I banned them from telling one another to shut up!  Sorry, I digress.  The lightcatcher.  As with the others,  I've resisted drilling holes to suspend it from in case the eventual owner would prefer it hung differently.  In the hope of finding that owner I've listed it on Folksy - although in the meantime I must say it looks pretty comfortable rested against my window!

If you missed the posts about how this piece of kiln fused glass art came to be,  you can check the initial plan, the results of the first session in the kiln, and how the texture was created in a second firing.  And if you think you might have the perfect place for this to live, let me know!
