'GRANULARITY'- Pate de Verre
41 CGS artists reveal their work using the technique of Pate de Verre.
Pâte de verre is another form of kiln casting and literally translated means glass paste. In this process, finely crushed glass is mixed with a binding material and is usually formed by a variety of processes such as kiln casting, or casting into sand, graphite or metal moulds.
This was a CGS juried exhibition and after selection, this show was launched on 30th June 2015
Thank you to all those that submitted work.

Orange Pate de Verre approx 20 cm high and 20 cm wide, blue Pate de Verre approx 10 cm high x 10cm wide. Glass used is Bullseye. These 2 are part of my final project for my BA Glass. The shape of the vessels are based on the fibonacci code which is the basis for my work as I find inspiration from the surrounding countryside.

This piece is called Momentary Sequence - The concept is Natural Geometry and the piece is inspired by a rhododendron flower. It is made using Bullseye frit and the piece made using pate de verre, comprising eighteen pentagonal segments. I have used a process of digital representation in the form of 3D printing to achieve the pentagonal forms.
Powdered bullseye glass packed specificially, into lost wax mould. High fired to achieve full fuse.

Pate de Verre mask mounted on wood. Fionnghuala came about as part of a collaboration between the Lace Guild member, Jennifer Williams, and myself. Jennifer provided the tatting which I then used to decorate the mold for Fionnghuala. The mask is life sized.
The moulds for the taillight holders were made by pouring the mould mix over inflated balloons. This created a smooth egg shaped mould into which the glass mix could be pressed.
Metaphorically representing life, its weakness and its strengths, and how we can remain strong no matter how
broken we feel.
Fragments of glass held together by rods, inter-woven to create a strong structure, of which appears fragile and weak.
Showing a strength within the form of fragility.

The work reflects my childhood in Ukraine. I come of a family with a textile background. Fabrics, yarn and needles were floating throughout the house. Fabric one can easily fold and pull in all kinds of forms. For me glass is a carrier of memories. With my objects I want to have transformed a movement and perception into matter. A hastily thrown-down handkerchief refers to smells from the past, is a metaphor of time and process. You go on with your life and the handkerchief remains.

I made this during Alicia Lomne's pate de verre course at Warm Glass in February. It was inspired by beautiful winged seed pods of Love-In-A-Mist flowers, in my garden.
