Kiln Formed Glass Sculpture


This free standing sculptural piece incorporates a sumi E style image on kiln formed glass. The brush strokes were painted with water based paints suitable for firing to 850 degrees Celsius. Using a soft chinese goat hair brush, in this style of painting economy of stroke is important. The figures are formed using only sufficient marks to express the posture and relationship between the mother and child.

All materials are found/recycled (except the paint) using tin float, broken glass and a base of driftwood. (height approx 30 cm)
