about

Handblown recycled glass (Bang & Olufsen Television glass - very good quality optical glass with a high lead content) and steel. The top section is held in place upon the metal base below by a strong magnet.

Apertura Sky is a unique artwork created from glass and steel. Combining a weathered and aged appearance, this totemic piece has a symbolic presence. 

A reoccurring theme throughout the years within Lewis' work has been the synthesis of glass with metal, which under the creative influence of the artist, results in corrosion, patination and texture.

These blown glass forms are coated by ‘spark impregnation’. Lewis intensely grinds iron and other metals, creating a multitude of small, hot, airborne metal particles that instantly bond and finally cover, the surface of his glass.

Forever evolving works, the consistent detail for each is a window of pure transparent coloured glass, a framed aperture to the internal space, encased and surrounded by this metallic shell.
