Mallard Printed Framed Glass Picture (made to order)


Ships From: United Kingdom (UK)

Sold by Dawn Turner Designs Categories: , , ,



This framed iconic and still world record holding Mallard Train is a mixture of techniques; kiln formed glass, digital drawing and image manipulation to create the silhouette.

(also available are other trains, as well as planes and camper vans)

First, the coloured background is created using a variety of glass powders. Each one is hand sifted, each one is unique and I cannot accurately predict the outcome or distribution and depth of colour.

A layer of glass is added on top to create depth and dimension to the picture, and this top layer is either screen printed with glass enamels, or a specially made decal is applied (images created with special pigments). Either way, the image is applied by hand, and then fired to ensure permanence (the pigments in the decals and enamels fuse fully to the glass, they don’t just sit on the surface)

The glass is fired twice in one my specialist digitally controlled glass fusing kilns and annealed for strength and durability – each firing cycle takes between 18 and 24 hours.

This piece is framed in a deep frame; this one is black “polcore” (recycled material, and the frames are made in the UK) which has a grain finish and backed with complementary mountboard. The frame can either free-standing as it is approx 1″ (2.5cm deep), or be wall hung, as there is hanging bar inside the back – aperture is approximately 5″ (13cm) and outer size is about 17cm

Handmade in Derbyshire

    Beautifully made and really tactile little pocket tokens. Exactly what I needed.

    Lovely little pocket smiles. Really tactile. Rapid delivery and I can’t wait to get these sent out and hopefully pass on some smiles.

    Bought as a birthday present for a good friend… and he loves it. The texture in the moon is particularly appealing. Suits a modern bedroom really well. There’s nothing like buying from proper makers, creators and artists directly. Thank you!

  5. Julie Brandon

    I’m very happy to give this a five star review. The piece itself is gorgeous and a work of art. The packaging was on another level to protect it in the post.
