Through exploration of shape, colour and cultural meanings, my practise has naturally formed around vessels as sculptural and decorative objects. My most recent works are personal responses to the idea of collections and why we hoard certain objects. Through the visual influence of Lalique glass art, my own pieces resonate in style.
My long-term fascinations with vessels and glass as an aesthetic material, have been developing themes since early education in art and design. My pieces seek to spark curiosity in the viewer, alike to the curiosity I have of unusual objects. In many of my works, I mean to recreate the feeling of peering into a cabinet of curiosities (Wunderkammer) – A feeling which I owe my passion for glass to.
