WOVEN GLASS

 

Reminiscing the rich history of the wool and textile industries of Yorkshire and its relationship with the land, the waters and the people, my new Woven Glass series explores the interconnectedness, ebb and flow, strength and fragility of life. Fine stripes of glass are hand-tinted with gold, copper, bronze mica powder and fired with fine glass powder to create subtle colouration before woven together (over and under). The glass is then slumped under heat and gravity to into organic forms that mimic the fluidity and softness of woven fabric.
