The Inspiration Behind The Design.
Design Inspiration – Hailstones Design
Sue Hailstones’s work is inspired by the timeless beauty of Ancient Britain. The amazing artwork is handcrafted by Sue, bringing a uniqueness and individuality to each piece.
I am often asked where I find the vision and imagination for my unique art pieces. I lived in a fishing village on the stunning Cornish Coast in the South West of England and spent many hours watching the sea and boats. It was the ever-changing moods of the sea and surroundings that gave me such inspiration. So much so, that I was compelled to capture these moments. Hence my art was born.
Sue Hailstones – Award Winning Artist
Each work of art is a complete story and is entirely unique. Every piece is personally signed by Sue and named, with its own certificate of authenticity.
Sue uses Dichroic Glass, as it possesses a transmitted colour and a completely different reflective colour, the colours shift depending on your angle of view.
A variety of specialist limited edition glass is always specially chosen for the iridescent colour, sparkle and texture. Sue then hand cuts, shapes and hones each piece in her workshop.
Glass has been used for art for many centuries, because of its beautiful qualities – and Sue is constantly inspired by the history of glass, when creating her designs.
She incorporates many of the latest high-tech aerospace applications which have been re-invented for the art glass industry. This process uses quartz and metal oxides, which are permanently adhered to layers of glass.
