Empoli Jar with Thistle
Gaining a reputation for his unique artworks, Lethbridge produces one-off sculptural and lighting pieces, each incorporating a multitude of glass thorns, shards and tendrils. Created with an inventive yet repetitious approach to glass making, Lethbridge’s pieces are instantly recognisable, highly desired and truly one of a kind.
The sources of inspiration in his own words:
“Through the study of botanical sources of inspiration, my work exists as pieces of collected, abstracted, surreal and almost alien pieces of sculptural glass. Derived from many different points of reference, such as twisting vines and microscopic pollen, I explore form, space, material and texture, using only the purity and fluidity of hot transparent glass and light. Through my work I attempt to communicate my feelings towards the material adding a flourish of organic surrealism”
The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
