Abstract

The narrative of this new series of work 'Land, Light, Identity' refers to the stripping back of landscape to reveal the internal scarring of the land. The work reviews the geological history of landscape alongside the mark of man. This new body of work was inspired by a residency at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop in Aberdeenshire, organised by the Naked Craft Network. All of the works have been cast in Bullseye Glass and have been cold worked, sandblasted and diamond cut.

'Scarred Landscape' was created in white kiln cast glass, the works are opaque and solid in form, the surface has a glossy translucency but the main body of the work is a stark representation of the landscape, bleached and uncovered.

'Thawed Landscape' was created in clear kiln cast glass, the works are like solid block of ice, not yet melted they represent a frozen moment in time of an ancient landscape.

'Thaw' was created in clear kiln cast glass with a white kiln cast core, they present the land forming and moving as the landscape is made.
