Organic Form

Practical or free hand

I make various sculptural pieces including bowls using circular, rectangular or square moulds as well as freehand moulds. Most of the bowls are practical and might be used to show off fruit, floating candles or alternatively used as tableware.

Lattice

Bowls can be made using a coral or lattice technique which allows the various apertures to give a further dimension especially when complimented by sunlight.

A Drop in the Ocean

I wanted to catch the reflections of the small glass droplets to convey a sense of freshness and light. The maroon droplet is the ‘Drop in the Ocean’.

Creating this piece is a lengthy process because it involves three firings in the kiln.

Life Story

When fungal spores absorb water a division takes place and the circular growth is called a ‘colony’. Creating these bowls reminds me of nature.

I have made several of these lattice bowls which is quite time consuming but I really enjoy the construction.

Burst

Nature finds a way of combining colours which is always a good guide to what ‘looks’ right. I love the contrast of these two colours and feel they show a burst of energy.

Freedom Pathway

Clean lines with a myriad of moving bubbles. Coloured glass used for kiln fusing usually has a metal content such as lead, copper or sulphur and different combinations may cause a reaction demonstrated by the white strip seen to the side of this bowl.

Vibrant Life

Whilst considering life and colour I came across some photos, displayed at the Eden Project, of pollen and seeds which were taken with an electron microscope and magnified x 1500. These memories inspired some of the work for my lattice bowls.

Made with a white base glass and glass powders.

Contrast

Volcanic lava flow rising to the surface.  The texture of orange and yellow is formed using broken pieces of clear glass and powders.

The holes are intentional making this unsuitable for liquids

Fresh Growth

In making this bowl I wanted to illustrate a network of tree roots seeking nourishment to encourage growth and anchor a tree to the ground.

The air trapped between two pieces of glass forms these fascinating bubbles.
