Moments of Tension

Pâte de verre and hot formed glass, murrini
10 H x 20 W x 20 D cm

My glass works are used as a metaphor for interaction and relationships. Each individual reacts with the community, to fold and flow in conversation, debate and resolve. Creating my forms in a hot shop rather than the conventional mould making methods is an exciting departure from classical customs of working with the pâte de verre method.
