Where Glass & Painting Come Together In The Most Peculiar Way!
Cape Breton Tartan Plate 8"
It has taken me years and many attempts to finally get the Nova Scotia Tartan to where I wanted it to be in fused glass! I am very pleased with this representation...so, one must push the envelope further! I have now worked out the Cape Breton Tartan!
The tartan of Cape Breton, was designed in 1957 by Elizabeth Grant. Its colour scheme was derived from a 1907 poem by Lillian Crewe Walsh:
Black for the wealth of our coal mines Grey for our Cape Breton Steel Green for our lofty mountains, our valleys and our fields Gold for the golden sunsets shining bright on the lakes of Bras d'Ors To show us God's hand has lingered To Bless Cape Breton's shore.
8" square rimless plate
