Roxburghe House was purpose built in 2004 to provide specialist palliative care to patients. It is located in Aberdeen and run by NHS Grampian.
To create an art installation that incorporates an acknowledgement to the donors that sponsored construction of the Roxburghe House building.
Davia Walmsley of Daedalian Glass Studios designed three glass panels that represent a montage of the topography of Aberdeenshire. Each one has a base of pebble shapes cast in heavy gaffer glass (a lead crystal from New Zealand). These feature the names of the three main stakeholders and are lit from behind using stainless steel lightboxes. The glass appears either pink or green dependant on the angle of the light striking its surface.
A series of individual sheets of sandblasted bullseye glass sit above this, one behind the other, and are lit from below to create a sense of dimension and depth to the designs. They represent heather, fields, trees, and mountains. On each of the front panels, the names of other donors have been sandblasted so as to be clearly visible but not dominate the overall design.
