In the artist’s own words;
"The Torsion series is a technical exploration born from my time as a teaching assistant on James Maskrey’s master class at Bild-Werk Frauenau in Germany in May 2016. Whilst developing my technical abilities and skill, I found that the walls of a blown glass vessel would ripple and buckle when subjected to an imbalance of either heat or thicknesses. The works created now, several years on, are the culmination of the technical journey to handcraft a glass cylinder without the use of moulds or formers, alongside demonstrating understanding and control of the material to encourage the specific folding of the vessel wall.”
This is purely a sculptural piece and not suited to use as a vase.
The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
