Vortical pair XI

Blown glass, wheel cut

This work alludes to the fantastic and exotic world of marine nature. Utilising grinding and polishing techniques I explore patterns, forms and textures that are inspired by the mysterious biosphere that inhabits the oceans. Windows into the work reveal a floating world within each piece; a pattern of rotational symmetry reflected on an internal bubble.

I hope the work elicits the same feeling of discovery and wonder that we feel when exploring the alien terrain of the ocean or when looking at nature through a microscope lens.
