Delighted to have won the Emerging Maker Award in glass, and Glass Society of Ireland award at the RDS Craft Awards 2017. Exhibited at the RDS Craft Awards 2017, and the Dublin Horse Show. “Hidden Narratives” A triptych of fused glass wall panels.
The images are from photographs of shadows on a gallery floor in the USA. I was inspired by the shadows to create work that represented the “hidden narrative’ of my experience on this trip. The images can be read by touch and by sight.
Screen-printed glass powders on glass sheet, using Bullseye steel-blue opal sheet glass, steel-blue opal powder and reactive ice clear powder.
