I have been working with kiln fired glass for about 5 years and enjoy making many different things. I have made foiled light catchers and leaded panels but prefer working with fused glass. I make table and home wares and some earrings and pendants but my real love is making landscape pictures in glass using powders and glass only. I use no paints at all as I think that is more true to the art.
'Materials and Objects'
Materials, techniques and processes are very important in my work. I have been fascinated by the endless possibilities of metal and glass right from my childhood, watching and helping the Artisans with their creations in the rich, colourful and vibrant Yoruba culture.
My work is a collection of sculptural and functional objects, influenced by public and open spaces. I paint or add metal onto my glass pieces to achieve a painterly colour, texture, and contrast.
It's material that gives substance to everything we see and touch. The exploration and experimentation of materials and techniques not only allows me to be creative, but it does also evoke my passion to make. My imagination through the processes results in a story and poetic narration.
London-based glass artist Yorgos Papadopoulos’ unique treatment of glass is innovative and highly experimental. Papadopoulos’ successful commissions range from medium size to large scale works for venues such as corporate headquarters, hotel lobbies, private residences, luxury cruise liners and garden landscapes. Pioneer of a technique he developed at the Royal College of Art, Papadopoulos breaks, colours and textures sheets of industrial glass and then re-laminates them to make architectural scale artworks which appear fragile but are extremely durable.
