Meet Sila Yucel

Sila Yücel is a dedicated and talented emerging glass artist. She became immersed in the digital world from initially specialising in graphic design and has now set herself the task of reimagining those elements in a compelling medium. Inspired by the bold hues, smooth gradients and sharp edges of digital imagery, she strives to recreate these qualities in the physical world- so that they can be rediscovered in a playful new way. Using 3D printing technology to design accurate prototypes, she blends the opportunities provided in technology with the principles of traditional glass making. Purposefully choosing familiar geometric forms, she leaves no room to hide, where the challenges of achieving symmetry become an ongoing journey in her practice. 

About the work

Her current ‘cubes’ are cast as six, in the first instance formed through a 3D Modelling Programme, and then cold worked (ground and polished) before painstaking assembly to achieve the finished piece.  The internal overlaps and layering create beautiful gradients of intense colour and light in a physical and translucent form. Her pure forms possess an ethereal quality – they flow with exquisite luminosity.
