SILVER CASED GRAAL
Highly skilled and unique art glass forms. An ancient technique, The Holy Grail of glassmaking, extremely challenging with spectacular results.
The Gräal technique fuses my fascination with blending hot studio techniques and hand carved surface layers. The carved embryo is cased in molten glass & the challenge is to coax the glass into shape, allowing the temperature of the newly gathered layers to fuse and encapsulate the form before losing control. The viewer is drawn into magnified facets and focused on the detailed carved surface suggesting a frozen moment in time.
