Single Wave Coaster
Unique handmade fused glass wave coasters. Each coaster is lovingly crafted in Newquay Cornwall.
The sea and its different moods have always been in my life. Especially its sound, which can be carried many miles inland on the wind, it is a constant background noise to life in Cornwall. The sea is all encompassing its colour, sounds and smell, its reflections, translucent quality and constant movement can hold your attention like nothing else. To me glass has a similar quality to water and is the perfect medium to express it. It is enigmatic you can look at it, or through it. It is there and not there.
I have tried to show the many different colours and moods the sea has though starting with a clear glass as the sea itself it is clear. Its colours come from the reflection of the sky and seeing the sand and rocks though the water. So I have used frits and enamels to add those colours.
All Coasters have slightly different colours
Approx size 10cm x 10cm
Dreya Glass is a glass studio in Newquay Cornwall offering fused glass wall art and and objects of desire. We also specialise in stained glass work. Bespoke designs, standard designs and restoration.
Founded by Dreya Bennet, her designs are inspired by the sea and its different moods. Dreya’s fascination for the sea and water, in general, began with the swimming pools and the sea in Africa. Her love of water intensified on return to Cornwall; seeing its beautiful beaches and the crashing Atlantic surf of the Cornish Coastline.
Glasswork came into Dreya’s life by accident while studying at Falmouth art college. She instantly fell in love with the look and the process of working with glass. This led to a specialism in Architectural Stained Glass at Swansea. Since retiring from competitive sport, Dreya Bennet glass art has taken off.
