CUP-CASED AND ENAMEL CAMEO
Traditional, English Cameo Glass cup casing techniques, plus highly complex core overlays, sterling silver & hand applied enamels deliver multiple stratum of pure colour both on the inside & outside of the glass vessel. I divide the narrative by carving imagery on both the internal & exterior surfaces of the crystal form. By incorporating 24ct gold leaf between the colour layers, I endeavour to redirect attention from the inner to the outer carved layers, as the light source & angle of viewing alternates. The hand carved surface qualities are lustrous & tactile, enticing the viewer to touch, caress & engage with the vessel.
