A commissioned birthday treat trivet for a fan of Scottish Colourists, this is 10″ x 10″ stained glass on board with a slightly blue grout. It’s homage to this beautiful (record breaking apparently) still life by Peploe and I have to say the style with the heavy outlines and flat plain approach lends itself to mosaic. What a pleasure to absorb the elements of a Peploe still life, the vase, the tulips, the fruit and the lovely colours of course. I love a commission for someone who knows what they like, it’s a challenge and always a pleasure to have a place to start. Here it is in a different light.
