In October 2021 Mark launches his virtual exhibition Light, Glass and Shadow. Inspired by light refracting through different glass textures and colours, immerse yourself in the world of glass art beyond the physical plane.
Hand-blown studio glass inherently has it's own unique quality due to the nature of the material. Small blemishes, bubbles and other effects naturally emerge out of the material's surface, forming part of it's distinctive hand-crafted characteristics. An extension of this idea is to experiment within the glass to amalgamate both the light source and the effect in the glass to create dramatic shadowing. Within the parameters of the shadowing, we also aim to introduce colour and scale.
