Taking cues from the concept of the beach as a liminal space, where boundaries between sea and land are blurred, my Liminal Beach series has evolved as a collection of decorative and sculptural centrepieces cast in lead crystal. Variance of thickness and the blending of colours has been achieved through the use of glass with a high lead content. Details of textural imprints left from ebb and flow of the tide upon the sand have been highlighted to achieve depth in the centre and delicacy at the edge.
Mould making is the start of the process to create fluid, textural forms which are invested into plaster. Casting and shaping takes place within a kiln at precise temperatures to achieve textural details and highlight surface qualities and reflections through the glass.
