Intrinsic Hand Carved Cameo
Innovative ground breaking 21st Century cameo glass. Themes of Dragonflies & hummingbirds evoke the spirit of Gallѐ the French master glassmaker.
Jonathan has developed an innovative carving technique selectively carving through layers of pure colour on the inside of the form. A thick sumptuous casing of crystal glass forms an optical lens focusing on and magnifying the detailed carving in high relief. Vibrant shifts of colour are encapsulated amidst the three dimensional imagery as sparkling light is captured within the form. Logic suggests that conventional glass cameos are subdued and opalescent with a matt surface. In contract, intrinsic cameo exploits unique glass qualities of transparency and translucency to create carved cameos which are colourful, glossy and extremely ‘glassy’.
