Resilience, one of my Lockdown series of glass bowl forms. This one-off design was made with boldness and strength in mind, dark and light areas of contrasting colours that bond together to become stronger. Handmade in my signature style, it is very highly textured with individually applied details which result in playful interactions with light and casting shadows.
Using a variety of warm glass techniques and numerous kiln firings to create each one-off wall art, sculptural works and jewellery, I manipulate layers of specialist glass, in my chosen colour combinations, to construct captivating objects. A key theme running through my arts practise is exploring ways for us to slow down, encouraging us all to take a closer look at our surroundings, to appreciate the little things in life.
Lockdown heightened the need to focus my attention, seeking the positive aspects of the enforced time at home and how this continues to effect my life choices. I seek to capture your attention, give pleasure, encourage you to notice the subtleties within each piece and indulge in some time for you. Contemplating, reflecting.
Size: Approximately 35cm in diameter, and 9cm deep.
