Lichen Studies I
Using a variety of processes to create her work, Pulford often employs a complex combination of glass techniques - casting, pate de verre, kiln formed, painted & etched - combined with natural materials that are either found or sourced, to complete her assemblages. Her artworks are visualised in many forms - vessels, sculptures and installations - for private collectors as well as for architectural and public art.
The common thread is a playful approach with ideas intertwined with magical realism, resulting in the artist’s own visual language. Inspired by the wealth of plants and organisms uniquely found in nature, Pulford equally draws on modes of cataloguing & archiving such ‘natural artefacts’ researching both historical and contemporary methods, such as early cyanotypes, x-rays, microscopic images and botanical drawings.
