GLASS ART AND METALS

These amazing gates at Millbrook Manor in Jersey were made by a collaboration of Artists.

 There are two iron gates each with two cast glass heads back to back. The heads are held in place with a copper band.

 The four heads are made of two slightly different designs and were cast with bullseye billets.

The glass was cast by Julie Bolton at Jersey Glass Art studio.

There are up lighters that highlight the gates and illuminate the glass at night time.
