ANGELINA THAKRAR

Name of Work:"Off Waddled the Peacock"
Third Line:Winner
Fourth Line:Bullseye Glass Education (Primary)

My name is Angelina and I am 9 years old and I made this peacock.  What initially inspired me to create a peacock was an off-cut piece of rainbowy dichroic on black glass, that I saw, which had been cut into a fan shape.  Also, I had recently seen a beautiful peacock at a hotel whilst we were on holiday and its shining, colourful feathers, reminded me of the similarity with dichroic glass, so I just had to create a peacock for this competition!   I love to see fun things happen once I have kiln-fired something!  My peacock is going for a waddle, on a bright summers day, into a field of funky flowers.'

Type of glass used: Bullseye sheet glass, frit, dots, stringers, various dichroics, copper foil, mica and Glassline pens used over and under capped dichroic glass.
