"The Contaminant As Actor"

Building on discourses of beauty, this project takes as its leaping off point, the problematic of imperfections in craft aesthetics. Can fundamental flaws in the construct of a work add to the overall depth and richness of a piece? By removing flint from the contact layer between plaster mould and glass I intentionally cause fractures and fusion, challenging high gloss notions of perfection.

Type of glass used: Cristalica, blown & cast

Type of kiln used: Kilncare FK Range
