Kilncast glass -Vessel Forms

About this project

I discovered kiln cast glass during my MA at the RCA 2009-11. A Major Creative Wales Award from the Arts Council of Wales enabled further investigation in glass as part of a research project entitled ‘An exploration in the language of form and material’. The general aesthetics of my work are concerned with forms that engage in a dialogue between fluid and formal lines. A growing understanding of the material qualities of glass, has informed the design process of new forms.
