NORÐURLJOS Lighting Installation
Beautifully hand-engraved, each pendant is covered in Gillespie's signature abstract patterns and textures which traverse from one to the next, creating a larger image when viewed as the whole.
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.
The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
