I have spent the last 20 years as a mold maker for Artists and sculptors, always keen to produce my own work with multi coloured sculptures in resin, never to succeed. At 75 my mind wandered back to glass & I was introduced to glass fusing. My first practical introduction was disappointing, fortunately the second contact was much more encouraging.
Limitations imposed by kiln sizes make design, layout and dimensions important for this work. The glass, with it’s light and pure colours and variations created by various coloured overlays bring the dull black and white sketch plans to life. Seemingly with a mind of it’s own the molten glass will decide just exactly where it will run, bringing another challenge to a most rewarding process. Hence though two pieces may start with the same layout, after the kiln and glass have combined, no two pieces will ever be the same. .
This year 2021, I entered the Maroondah Art Acquisition Awards & was fortunate enough to win ‘ joint first prize’. This was my first entry into a competition. Finalist in the 2021 ASV competition.
