Whispering Sweet Nothings. Recycling Narratives
Whilst studying Geology at the University of Edinburgh I became fascinated by the mineralogy and the reactions between various elements, metals and compounds. This led me towards a passion for the alchemy of glass.
Capturing that nostalgic imagery of childhood, exposing hidden narratives through cast sculptural glass stands at the core of my work.
Passionate about sustainability and recycling, using only 100% recycled glass, and found objects.
Sweet Nothings is a series of individual, unique Cast Glass figures. Usually found in pairs, whispering ‘Sweet Nothings’ to one another. What are they whispering? ‘ Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.’ (Dr Seuss, The Lorax).
