carved art glass mermaid - illuminated glass by Randy MadrusAs mesmerizing as the play of sunbeams on ice, this graceful mermaid is one of my favourite pieces in the portfolio of glass artist Randy Mardrus:

ā€œIā€™m a perfectionist and glass carving is a medium that is very unforgiving and will always challenge me… Depth and motion are my primary goals while creating the mood in my visual dramas…”

Handmade from start to finish, his work is more than the inspired design and meticulous carving of clear glass to create a one-of-a-kind artwork ā€” more than simple relief carving and well beyond traditional stained-glass illuminated art. The secret of colour here lies in the specially designed lighting (hidden in the frame) that brings each piece to vibrant life. See more beauty at
