Shan Valla.Barts installation

Phew…its has been such a busy month with London Design Festival, Origin and and all the rest. I have have such a fabulous reaction to my new Sprig vase and other products which have sold out!

Anyway now on to my next project. Im very excited to be working on a glass installation that Barts have commissioned me to create. It will be a wall hung ‘Garden’ piece, and is due to be installed in the next few weeks!

Here are the pictures now it is installed.

Barts and The London.(

Recently installed in the Chemotherapy Department are three new interrelated commissions that each explore light, shadow and reflection while striving to bring echoes of the natural world into the hospital. This ensemble of works, which includes glass, porcelain, gilding, and silver leaf brings a restrained elegance and calm to the department with transparent, white, or highly reflective surfaces throughout.

For the entrance of the Chemotherapy Department, Shan Valla has made a work of soaring glass branches. Nestled at the base of a mini forest of transparent and silver stems stand a pair of gilded porcelain birds.
