I have recently been experimenting with glass and stone combined.
The way that light is so important to both materials fascinates me. I like the idea of merging one dense medium with another consisting of transparent surfaces, both of which react to their surroundings in very different ways.
I’m not a “ cut glass “ kind of person but the thickness of the type I’ve used pleases me because it shows that greeny blue depth to the glass.
My designs are sandblasted onto the surface, sometimes front and back, then the stone and glass are fixed together.
I hope the effect echoes the kind of simplicity that I try to achieve in my more traditional sculptures.
