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. It is both known and unknown, quotidian and transcendent at the same time.
