Chrystalla’s fascination between opposites and contradictions to form hybrids and paradoxes, has been the driving theme behind her work for the last few years. Glass as a material, the epitome of contradiction, allows her to explore and express this keen interest on a multitude of levels. Coming from a Fine Art background and using a diverse range of techniques (such as deep sandblasting, water-jet cutting, blowing, kiln-work, laminating and lamp-working), Chrystalla has developed a personal approach to translating her ideas into art glass, achieving a simultaneous balance and conflict between modern and traditional practices.

Details about work or recent projects

Chrystalla works with commercial and site-specific projects, as well as private commissions; from small artworks to large-scale architectural features. Every stage from design to execution takes into consideration space, style and budget to produce the most innovative and suitable bespoke glass for individual requirements.
