This range of work looks at how we perceive and remember places and environments within our lives. The fact that we are able to bring associations to benign objects and settings, which hold a resonance throughout our lives, is of interest to me.
These pieces are part of a larger series of works addressing our associations with the environment, the home, our surroundings and the places we visit and have an impact on. They reference a narrative that can be read as personal or generic, to which the viewer can bring their own associations,
Each one-off piece of glass is hand modelled; cast and polished giving each piece a precious quiet elegance. These pieces all have a narrative association, suggesting the feelings and resonance of a particular place or setting which has been captured within the glass, giving them the airy ethereal quality of memories past.
