Soon to complete Bachelor or Visual Arts from the Australian National University in 2015 my current practice incorporates glass blowing, painting, and drawing.
As an artist I aim to create works that engage with the human form and portraiture in order to explore notions of humanity and struggle. I propose that the material qualities of glass such as transparency and clarity will allow me to translate my ideas on the transient and fragility of this human condition.
I rely on my experience of these material processes to convey my ideas. My works begin with drawing. This builds an aesthetic that carries into the hot-shop and casting glass processes.
My design work incorporates an understanding of functionality and the relationship between the design and intention of the work. In the future I hope to expand my hot blown glass production in order to engage with the sculptural and figurative potential of this medium.
