'Jewel of the Universe' - Chris Chamberlain
Pieces compared to a penny
Chris Chamberlain

I have developed a unique technique in my London studio called ‘Grand Artimmosa’. This consists of hundreds of thousands of tiny hand-cut pieces of stained glass which are then applied mosaic-style to a thick sheet of perspex. Combined with embedded gemstones and internal illumination by LEDs, the result is, as the Turner Prize winning artist Richard Long wrote: "Amazing and absolutely stunning." 'Jewel of the Universe', a portrait of the Earth which was exhibited at the ROA Gallery London in December 2012, is the debut work of this technique. Commissions most welcome.
