about

Oyster Platter is a beautifully hand-engraved glass dish that is covered in Gillespie's signature abstract patterns and textures on the front and the back of the piece. With both visible through the see-through glass, the two sides dance and interact as the viewer's eyes traverse the surface of the artwork.

Gillespie fell in love with the art of copper wheel engraving, an archaic process no longer taught in the UK, during the year that she spent in the Czech Republic following her training in Edinburgh. She is now applying her labour-intensive and precise deep cuts and patterns to hand blown glass vessels, bowls and lighting pieces, all unique and both expertly and exquisitely crafted.
