Meteorite Series

 

2005

H. 750mm x W. 295mm

 

Meteorites, ‘small pieces of matter from celestial space’ provide the inspiration for these elemental pieces whose textured surfaces retain the memory of glass in its molten state.

Having made 2000 Glass beads for the Versace 1999 Haute Couture collection, I got excited about melting glass in the kiln to create texture, turning it golden and then silvering or gilding it with precious metals to make it self reflecting. From this my on-going meteorite series was born.
