Artist Statement from the Loewe Craft Prize 2020:
Inspired by the optics of light and sense of space of Australia’s deserts and salt lakes, and concerned with the optics of light, this layered glass formation captures light in its 3D fused form. The object acts as a tabula rasa, capturing and reflecting subtle changes of light throughout the day. Fine molecules in the glass split the surrounding light into cool and warms tones – at first glance these areas may appear white, but on closer inspection shades of colour appear and gradually change as the light shifts throughout the day.
