"Symmetrical Composition Ref:2531145120135"

Kiln-formed glass charger (40 cm x 40 cm 4 cm). The glass I produce uses rotational symmetry as a tool to achieve patterns which exhibit a hypnotic, op-art effect. I use kiln-forming techniques to produce sheets of striped, coloured glass which are then deconstructed and reconstructed into mandala-like patterns. These arrangements are then kiln-fired and cold worked to produce the finished piece.

Type of glass used: Bullseye glass stringers, 2 mm clear sheet, 6 mm Tekta clear sheet 6 mm.

Type of kiln used: Northern Kilns Custom

United Kingdom
