Kirstie Rea – trellis

Sabbia Gallery is pleased to present this solo exhibition of new works in glass by Kirstie Rea.


The garden – another room of my studio. I share this space with nature, in the company of the seasons, of weather and the wildlife of this place. It offers form, colour, line, energy and reward each day. I nurture seeds and plants as I nurture ideas in the studio.

Complexity and variety nourished with effort and return, a reminder of the importance for daily connections to our natural world.

The trellis – a framework for what inhabits and flourishes in this place, a structure for a collaboration with nature, remind me of structures I create in the kiln for a collaboration with glass.

These works in glass abstract the awe and surprise that is found in nature, in the garden, things that delight and offer us a sense of wonder.
