A collection originally conceived for an exhibition, all pieces were made by hand in our workshop.
Inspired by images of the moon and planets, Highlight of the Night is a floor standing light with an illuminated cast glass disc.
I knew that I wanted to make a cast glass disc as a light and this was an opportunity to go back to working very hands-on with materials and processes in the workshop; to actually create the final objects. It's a different creative process where you have a freedom to adapt and respond to incidents during the process of creation. It's about experimenting and having fun in the workshop and to see making as a part of the design process.
Meandering Chair is an experiment in using a minimal amount of material to make an elegant seat.
For the With or Without You vases, engraved glass is given a weightless quality.
Inspired by seemingly impossible balanced objects and random tattoos, I started with two blown bubbles and began engraving on these without a set plan but responding to the drawings as they started to cover the glass. A bit like how all-over tattoos are mixed drawings of everything one likes, spiders, roses and small animals started to appear.
