A specialist in kiln-fused glass, Wakefield’s Claire Lake has been commissioned to produce a series of ten new works of enamel-painted, mounted glass panels for the walls of the former Market Hall.

Each of the panels promise a breath-taking, painstakingly created representation one of the amazing nebulae, dramatic formations of gases and dust, which are to be found deep in space.

Some pieces will be created with rare metals, including gold, in a complex process of combining materials and repeated kiln firing. The addition of glass granules and precise temperature control will appear to leave the stars on the surface of each panel.
