"Vitamin C"

Science is all around us and with a background working in neuroscience research I find the construction of the natural world both fascinating and inspirational. Nature produces incredible structures and the piece I have created for the competition is a panel inspired by the Crystalline structure of Vitamin C. I have used a microscopic picture of vitamin C as the starting point of the glass piece. The work is made entirely out of glass and lead created using traditional stained glass techniques. Antique hand blown flashed glass is cut and then engraved. Some pieces of glass have been screen printed on original bespoke fused glass sheets. The glass sheets are made from bullseye wafers and powders creating unique glass sheet for screen printing. The glass is painted and stained using silver stain. It is fired in a kiln before being leaded up into the panel submitted using traditional techniques.
