I have always found glass a fascinating and seductive material and in my practice I love to explore the fluidity of glass as a liquid, its sculptural quality as a solid as well as its transparency. In this body of work I use colour and light combined with these qualities to give a stylised sense of human movement without literally recreating the form of a body within fabric.
These pieces can stand alone or in conversation with others.
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
