We’re currently showcasing new pieces by Cathryn Shilling, who having studied in Connecticut returned to the UK and has a studio based here in London. Her Standing Forms appear to be mimicking the construction of fabric. Her use of different coloured glass rods enhance the woven like appearance of each piece, which is then slumped, allowing it to stand giving each piece a strong presence in contrast of the implied flexibility inherent to cloth.
Standing Form £900 each, H 42 – 45cm
Cathryn Shilling – Glassworks Quilt, 2011. £11,500
A bespoke hanging light edited by Vessel Gallery. Shilling’s glass rods are woven together like fabric, mimicking the flexibility and movement of cloth. The work encases lighting which picks out different layers of colour and iridescence. A patchwork of delicate glass balanced by the rigid structure of a grid. 5xE14 Max 360W. Dimensions: 107x37cm, H 37cm. Available in bespoke colours and sizes. Please contact us to discuss your project, email@example.com
