Reflection 2015

This body of work is an exploration of light and glass and how these two interact with the body – the saturation of light through the glass is shaped, absorbed and refracted, creating a heightened perception of depth and dimensionality. Glass, an age old material fused from the sands of the earth, holds a complex and mysterious quality, seemingly fragile and yet bonded to give strength, capturing and reflecting the ever changing light. I use glass to make these reflections, not only within the work itself but to also reflect upon the wearer, reflections that move with the natural movement of wearing –changing and evolving, reacting to the environment of light. A constant ever changing pattern for the eye to see, a feeling of transcendence and illumination - a reflection both within and on to the wearer.
