Wilson Smith, Cheryl
My work is deeply influenced by our human connection to the land. Living in the far north, I explore that which resonates with our soul. My delicate sculptures allow the viewer to draw asscociations with their own remembered landscapes, resulting in a medatative and emotional response. They become an interpretation of light and memory and a place for quiet contemplation.
My work is a manual form of 3D printing. I build layer upon layer of glass frit and fire the layers as a complete structure. I love to see what emerges out of the kiln.....it is like Christmas Morning, sometimes predictable, sometimes a surprise, always a delight.
