Collect Open 2019 - West South West

About this project

Selected for Collect Open 2019, West South West is a glass wall installation reflecting the fragile Bronze Age landscape of the far West of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly over the summer of 2018. Fragments of imagery are layered within kiln formed and water jet cut glass, mapping the shapes and contours of lichens and ancient stones. Individual pieces mirror both the wider landscape and small, close up details, floated slightly away from the wall surface to cast shadows.


£650 — £15000
