This is a versatile ornament that can be used in a variety of ways. You can put a candle behind it, it can stand on its own – or it can be used as a spoon rest. It features a large dragonfly in turquoise, with the same colour decorative detailing. It measures 24cm x 9cm. The shield is made by individual glass elements that are cut and then fired in a kiln to create fused glass. Each glass item is made by a mother and daughter in their studio in Essex.
