Details: Moulded from real leaves, a collection of Bullseye Frit sculptures.
Based on the acanthus leaf design found on many 17th century roll top desks, and echoing the quills that would have been used

Eidolon Arca
Photographer: Eva Reddy
Details: 2016, Cast Glass Foxes with Flat and Flashed Glass Imagery,
The composition, Eidolon Arca, is a meditative space which seeks to personify the qualities and nature of glass and convey my idealisation of the material. The narratives I have integrated into this body of work draw upon my research of concepts of deities relative to ritual and cultural phenomenon; and how these are manifested into artefacts. The primary focus of my research exploration encompassed human relationships with nature and animals. I found that deities within mythologies are often depicted as anthropomorphic or animal-like. Throughout cultural history, animals play an important symbolic role as well as being a source of food and companionship.

I have specifically chosen to work with the fox metaphor because of its historical associations with fire and its ability to endure which is relative to glassmaking enduring history and evolving over time. The fox represents devotion to glass while simultaneously reflecting qualities of the material through colour, form and durability.

Two sets of beads with meanders of stringerwork over a reactive glass base. In the flame, stringers find their own unique direction - sometimes this way, sometimes that way. Even beads with the same design are different, and it is these differences in repeated patterns that keep the eye moving across the subtly diverse work.

Like everything else feminism has been commodified and marketed...

"Cosmetics fashion and beauty commodities used to be marketed with the implicit promise that this product will make you loveable. Today these products are sold with the suggestion that this will make you powerful... Girl Power is removed from any context of girls social authority and represented solely in relationship to the development and maintenance of physical beauty".

Motley and Mimicry, Brazilian Butterflies
Photographer: Johnny Korkman
Details: Fused glass, 49 x 37 cms, 200€
These butterflies are one panel of a series of five, made for the upcoming exhibition “Origin of Life: Evolution vs.Creation” at Caisa Cultural Centre, Helsinki.

This panel illustrates Müllerian Mimicry. Fritz Müller was a contemporary of Darwin, and sent Darwin examples of different forms of a single species of Brazilian butterfly. The paler specimens mimic another species living close by. Müller’s great discovery concerned the resemblance between two or more unpalatable species which are protected from predators capable of learning, in this case birds.The potential prey uses colour to advertise how unpleasant it is to eat, and the bird learns to avoid that colour butterfly. The mimic does not actually need to be unpalatable, it just needs to resemble another species that is, and therefore it survives. Brazilian butterflies provide some extraordinary examples of mimicry and Müller believed such a system of mimicry could only come about by means of evolution by natural selection.

I studied Natural Science and evolution at University, so it was a joy to unite science and art in these exhibition pieces.
