Details about work or recent projects

The credit crunch and anxieties about societies' finances became the initial stimulation for my current work in glass. Looking closely at the beautiful design of each money note,the style represents to me a culture of privilege. I have used elements of money note design as references to 'Those who have..' Then there sections of society who become ineligible to the benefits that money can provide. My work points to the great divide in our rich society and may provoke thoughts about the relationship between money and the notion of power and control.
