Arty students get creative with glass
2:00pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
SCHOOL pupils made this beautiful ‘stained glass window’ entirely out of fishing line.
The three-colour artwork, called Earth, Fire, Water, now hangs proudly in the window of the North Wall Arts Centre in Summertown, Oxford.
The centre commissioned Kidlington artist Clair Murphy to design the work to accompany an exhibition by the Oxfordshire Basket Makers.
She in turn recruited 19 Year 10 students at John Mason School in Abingdon to create four panels of the work each.
Their webbed and strung panels are to reflect the weaving in the basketry exhibition.
North Wall general manager Sherrell Perkin said: “The students were given the brief and then did whatever they wanted. The results are absolutely original, creative and beautiful.”
