My sculptures are a cohesion of glass and metal, cast and rendered in sharp vertical and elongated planes. They are inspired by aspects of our built environment; the towering skyscrapers, compartmentalized blocks of units and industrial factories that constitute our urban spaces.
I cast the glass in thick sections and polish selected surfaces allowing for variations in texture and transparency. This emphasises the density and optical qualities of the glass allowing the viewer to glimpse through the surface and find evidence of its molten past; suspended bubbles and static veils frozen in time.
Metal elements consist of polished planes and oxidized textural surfaces. Opaque, and often reflective, the metal offers quite different characteristics to the translucent refractive qualities of the glass. Placing both types of media directly in each other?s space allows for their interaction to complement and balance each other. As the elements coexist they often reflect each other?s form and direction, this elusive and subtle dialogue creates the unity and harmony of the sculpted form as a whole.
