"Trapped Flow"

This object is part of an experimental series that explores both scale and form to strike a balance between mediums transparency and the inner space trapped within. The investigation combines two methods of kiln to casting and is about finding the limits of the of the material. This approach is sympathetic to the source material, the glass from cathode ray television screens. The making process capitalises on material properties to create the cellular patterns. These patterns represent both the flow of the molten glass and the information that flows across the optical boundary of the object.
