Cast & Carved Still Life II
Art works within this collection range from 60 to 80cm high
Standing glass sculptures composed from various cast, cut and battuto* finish glass pieces. Cast glass has been molten, reheated and hand sculpted to shape before finished off on a diamond grinding wheel. Mounted on a glass base.
(*Battuto: This is a type of glass where the surface has a homogeneous set of grindings applied to the surface which can be variable in depth, slightly irregular, created as an imitation of hammered branches)
During his 30+ year career within the world of glass, Simon Moore has built up a reputation for both technical and artistic mastery. His own workshop practice - first begun in 1982 when he joined the highly influential Glasshouse in Covent Garden - remains determined in its marriage of embedded skills and aesthetic subtleties, born of his love of making and expert knowledge of material.
The artist can also create variations to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
