Current Exhibition

‘TRANSPARENCY’- WINTER: ICE AND PURITY

Purity is the absence of impurity or contaminants in a substance.

Ice is water frozen into a solid state. Depending on the presence of impurities such as particles of soil or bubbles of air, it can appear transparent or a more or less opaque bluish-white color.

It falls as snowflakes and hail or occurs as frost, icicles or ice spikes. Glass shares many similar qualities, the material shining with light and imbued with subtle hues of liquid transparency.

50 CGS members have been selected to take part in this visually stunning online glass exhibition.

Thank you to all those that submitted a piece of work. For each online gallery show, pieces are juried and selected by the CGS committee. We had a large number of entries for this show and were delighted with the response from members.

Icebergs
Photographer: A Brinsmead-Stockham
Details: Kiln-cast, cold-worked, Gaffer glass
Icebergs are viewed by some as the epitome of Ice and Purity. Others may see them as a visible demonstration of our interaction with (or destruction of) our planet and the gradual disappearance of glaciers as our world warms up. But whatever the opinion is, they are always a thing of beauty, majesty and awe.

I have chosen water and ice trays as one way to explore the transparency of both water and glass.

Water is restful and calming, when frozen as snow and ice it is still and quiet. Glass with heat in the kiln can transform from solid to liquid and back again, as water does with cold in a freezer.

Glass has beautifully transparent qualities, like ice. And, like ice, those transparencies can vary from cloudy to crystal-clear, and hold a variety of colours it steals from its surroundings. Like ice, glass entices to itself, holds onto, and returns light.

I interpret landscapes through exploration of material.

Details: Clear cast glass with a white cast glass core.
This piece was created in clear kiln cast glass, which has been cold worked, sandblasted and diamond cut. The work is like a solid block of ice, not yet melting it represents a frozen moment in time of an ancient landscape.

The narrative of this series of work refers to the stripping back of landscape to reveal the internal scarring of the land. The work reviews the geological history

Monster's etymology comes from the latin "monstrare", to show.
My Winter Monsters seek aesthetics and purity.
As ice, they produce the same pattern again and again, and they clip each other to evolve depending on the environment.

Glass can make a permanency of ice, catching the reflective and refractive qualities as light changes. These small segments are not just to be seen in their relationship to each othere, but to be held in the hand to enjoy the beauty of what we are losing with the retreating ice.

I have chosen water and ice trays as one way to explore the transparency of both water and glass.

Water is restful and calming, when frozen as snow and ice it is still and quiet. Glass with heat in the kiln can transform from solid to liquid and back again, as water does with cold in a freezer.

I use the lost wax process for these pieces, casting multiple’s of ice cube

Glass has beautifully transparent qualities, like ice. And, like ice, those transparencies can vary from cloudy to crystal-clear, and hold a variety of colours it steals from its surroundings. Like ice, glass entices to itself, holds onto, and returns light.

The White Place, Cast Glass, Lost Ice Process, with salt erosion.

Details: 39 x 27 x 8 (cm) (wxhxd)
I interpret landscapes through exploration of material. I focus on rugged coastlines, looking at erosion as a spectacle of discovery and generation of form, revealing a sense of the history and movement of a place. The work is produced using my ‘Lost Ice Process.’ I use salt to sculpt ice as a one-off ephemeral model to take a direct cast from.
