Glass sculptures

CONSTRUCTED WALLS
These pieces explore the beauty of cairns, harbour walls, dry stone walling and rocky outcrops.

The compositions are evocative of the landscape and suggest rocks and stones placed harmoniously together, contrasting defined edges with the softness of adjacent vegetation. The blocks of colour echo the surrounding landscape and sky. They have a sense of place and atmosphere.

The sculptures are constructed by hand using chunks of glass to create a natural form, 23.5ct gold may be added suggesting golden lichen.

The pieces are then fired in the kiln over several days. Opening the kiln and discovering the success is always a joy.
