Cloaked - Hecuba and Priam
Free blown glass with kilnformed glass cane fabric applied hot
Cloaked are large figurative pieces that are the culmination of the development of ideas and processes made over a long period of time. The process of slow, considered exploration of the material cold and rigid in the studio. The technical exploration of hot glass processes requiring quick judgements in order to create a form, drawn from observation. And the process of resolution, so by bringing these elements together, produces something that is greater than the sum of the parts.
The pieces stand tall like characters in a play, conveying the essence of inevitable tragedy to be found in life, love, war and death.
