About

‘Edmond Byrne’s new glass vessels carry marks that reflect the moment of their making and their yearning for the past. Here is a balance of the ancient and the present; the remembered and the contemporary. His vessels may look as if they have been uncovered in an archaeological site. Surfaces are encrusted as if with the leaching silica of an ancient place, or the patina of a Roman bowl in a museum vitrine. They have an empathy with nature as well as time.’

Prof. Simon Olding, Glass of Ages.
