size: 12.5cm diameter x 3.5cm
type: Black, Light Amber and Opal Cast Glass
These pieces are cast in the kiln, during which at least two glass drawings are floated in the semi-liquid glass.
In addition to the images these new works have begun to explore colour and in so doing create a personal colour pallet. To do this, Helen has working with an Opaline Glass, which changes from clear/transparent to white opaque depending upon how it is heated in the kiln. This overlay, of a controllable semi-white element, allows her to produce subtle hues and pastels within the glass composition. This also enables the perceived colour of the glass to shift as the light source changes.
