PROTESTER II Dangerous When Neglected
In this short series of work, David Reekie and Morag Reekie, a father and daughter team, have collaborated around the idea of protesters and some general themes of protesting in today’s society.With these pieces we have combined glass making techniques that each of us has developed over the past few years. We have also combined our modelling skills and a shared use of colour whilst working on these figures.
Their spiky appearance indicates their anger at the society around them and the placards show the reason for their distrust of government and the establishment at this present time. These are figures that are hard to handle and control and they want things to change!
Lost wax cast glass figures, with fused coloured glass shards and applied glass pieces.
