GLASS ART ARCHIVE

The glass art works pictured below are examples of patterning and form drawn from years of experimentation.  The conservationist metaphoric themes continue to be the primary inspiration.

A modern glass artist drawing on ancient techniques

Noel has developed a glassblowing technique inspired by the Middle Eastern core-formed glass from 3500 years ago, replacing the dung/clay core with an expandable glass bubble. Working with a team of glassblowers, the basic hot glass bubble is coated with multiple coloured parts that simulate the plumage of bird species in a painterly manner. A variety of minimalist forms are then blown from the hot glass which will either become finished stand alone works, or used in the creation of unique glass collages.
