Ciudad sin sueño

by David Mola


Ciudad sin sueño is an exceptional one-off stained glass artwork by Edinburgh-based Spanish glass artist David Mola.

This is part of a series of panels inspired by poems from Federico García Lorca (5 June 1898 – 19 August 1936) who was a Spanish poet, playwright, and theatre director.

This piece pays tribute to a poem by the same name. Ciudad sin sueño was written between 1929-1930 and its title is often translated as ‘Sleepless city’. The poem has another, less well-known title, which is Brooklyn Bridge Nocturne.

Stained glass panel with a free-standing base.

Mixed cathedral and hand blown glass. All painted and fired. Then leaded and copper foiled.

Framed size: 45 x 46 x 4 cm

Glass Designer

Edinburgh-based David Mola is a versatile glass artist who has worked for many years with both stained and bespoke kiln-glass.

Every piece that he makes is designed and made solely by him, they are each handcrafted and unique. As much as possible David recycles leftover glass, wasting as little as possible, and also enjoys experimenting with other materials and disciplines that he can bring in for contrast with the glass in his works.

Current projects include incorporating cement, rocks, stray branches and lighting into his creations. Much of David's inspiration is derived from nature and distilled into simple structures and striking designs, and the works he creates are often intended to reintegrate with natural surroundings, at once harmonious and unexpected, never jarring.
