I work in glass for its connection to our prehistory as well as for the range of colours it affords. I most frequently use opaque glass for colour saturation, often mixing my own colours from glass powders or sintering the powders into elements of a design. All my work is kiln-formed using heat and gravity to develop the final form. My background in archaeology and my love of nature inform my art.
Two shallow vessels; 125mm dia. by 27mm depth, and 255mm dia. by 50mm depth. ”Little Fish” is made of micro-wafers of glass powder, fused onto opal sheet glass. ”Big Fish” is made of wafers of glass powder fused onto Tekta which has a large wafer of powder with mica on the other side. Both are slumped into ball/sphere moulds.
