Framed Stained Glass Panel
59cm x 51cm
Made in Glasgow
Banana Boots has been created and designed for the Scottish Glass Society annual exhibition 2023 under the theme of “National Icons”.
The famous banana boots were designed and made for Comedian Billy Connolly, in 1975, by the Glasgow Pop Artist Edmund Smith. They made their first appearance on stage at the Music Hall in Aberdeen and in the same year the documentary Big Banana Feet was filmed, taking its title from the outrageous banana boots in which he often performed. The show led to Connolly’s big break making him a household name across the UK. The boots currently sit in the People’s Palace and Winter Gardens in Glasgow.
Rather than create a typical stained-glass window I have used solid opaque glass made by Oceanside to create the panel that is itself a piece of “Pop Art”. In every other way the panel has been made using traditional methods and materials. To create the Fyffes logo I chose to sandblast the glass rather than paint the text.
The finished panel has been framed.
