'Inconsequential' explores possibilities of layering and colour, using glass and mixed media. The conceptual aspect of my practice engages investigations of discarded things; things others deemed to be no longer of consequence. The design process began by tracing out the positive and negative spaces of selected sections of the sprue-sets and intuitively reconfiguring throughout, resulting in two separate bodies of work.
Some of the line-drawings and patterns inspired a series of solid forms using plaster-silica moulds and filled by purposefully positioning coloured glasses. They are intimately worked and reworked into the final glass forms through processes of several firings, grinding and polishing.
The final work involved the investigations of both negative and positive space being transposed into flat patterns, miniature forms and pressed glass paintings. The combined translucency and opaque nature of the selected glasses exploit the use of colour and their abilities to reflect and refract light.
