Altus in Fuchsia




H 26 cm W 12 cm D 9 cm


Handblown & sculpted glass




'Altus in Fuchsia' is a unique handblown sculpture by the British artist, Samantha Donaldson.

Created in layers of clear and purple coloured glass, these require intense making from the initial blowing to create the amorphic form, through to the laborious cold work working and cutting, to literally slice a section of the piece away and then polish the revealed surface.

Inspired by the internal structures of naturally occurring geodes, it was during these investigations that Donaldson created a series of works influenced by the exploration of the 'vug', which is the internal space within a geode. A continuous theme to her work, the aim being, to draw the viewer into the internal movement of each unique piece.

The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
