'Metamorphosis I' is a unique sculpture by the British artist, Cathryn Shilling.
Kiln-formed glass with 24 ct gold.
Shilling experiments with layering and fusing glass to produce beautiful one off sculptures. Her innovative pieces push the material beyond our usual comfort zones. Glass rods are woven together like fabric, mimicking the flexibility and movement of cloth. The apparent frailty of the glass is balanced by the strong dynamic forms and differing levels of light pick out the various strands making up each unique piece.
