Metamorphosis

revisiting past ideas and

launching at collect 2017

In the early nineties I created a series of clear, cut and polished glass forms with this title, with an entrapped configuration of air bubbles which appeared to boil in their struggle to escape. I am now finding, in my eightieth year a certain pleasure in returning to ideas not fully resolved – are any ideas ever fully resolved?

In these new works I have developed the methods used in the making of my Burano pieces to revisit the theme of inclusions once again.  One of the principal aims in this recent exploration is to utilise the medium’s qualities of refraction and magnification to enhance and intensify the encapsulated elements.
