This series of glass fruit explores a familiar ornament of another era and reimagines it in a new form.
Through the skilled process of glass casting, the artist pays homage to the blown glass fruit makers, and their collectors, from the 1960’s.
The light playful approach to everyday fruit is contrasted with the heaviness of the crystal glass, a unique material that catches and reflects light onto the surrounding surfaces. These objects are intended to provoke the senses and occupy a space where time, unlike real fruit, maybe kinder to them.
These objects are intended to provoke the senses and occupy a space where time may be kinder to them. Each fruit is cast in crystal glass using a lost wax process that involves divesting the form from layers of brittle plastic and silica.
