Lot 130 - Trottola I, Laura McKinley

I am fascinated by the playfulness and elegance of children’s toys and how the forms invite engagement. In my project ‘Childlike Abandon’ I am using hot glass which directly contradicts the delicate and fragile material with which the objects are created, whilst at the same time exploring form, texture, scale, and space. I wish to excite the viewer and evoke a childlike intrigue, drawing the viewer in to explore internal space, the play of light and shadow on the forms and the optical qualities of solid glass.

Freeblown glass, incalmo technique with turned bronze

H35 x W25 x D25cm
