Essentially, all of my work is about disappearance of some sort and I use glass as an embodiment of that notion, vacillating between a state of otherworldly perfection and one of mundane familiarity. I use a material that we don’t generally ‘see’; it is often flawlessly clear and colourless, hence invisible in that regard, but glass can also be so ubiquitous and banal that it does not register in our psyches either. To my mind, these two polarities are what set this material apart from so many others, and one of the reasons that I feel compelled to keep working with glass as an artistic medium. It is known and unknown at the same time, and both quotidian and transcendent.
