Rhossili glass bowl in misty grey.
"With glass the element of surprise is how beautiful bubbles and depth can be achieved. This is dependent on how the glass folds and melts when being cast for several days in a kiln. While this offers fluidity and movement the modelling and finishing processes are always very controlled; the forms I make are symmetrical and there needs to be real clarity in the surface finish. Models are made with varying thicknesses. Glass pools into these shapes, creating subtle changes in colour. Light interacts with polished and satin surfaces, reflecting and refracting in beautiful ways."
