COUTURE GLASS COLLECTION
I have long though about wanting to create wearable glass clothes.
Recently I have been making glass items to be worn using various techniques including painting and casting techniques. At present these items I have been able to wear and will be working on mounting and selling as Objet d’art.
I view these glass clothing items as ‘Cinderella’s Wardrobe’, she had the shoes so why not the clothes?
I love that glass relays a sense of vulnerability and yet strength at the same time. By wearing glass I can create a vision of wearing my fragility on the outside.
In this current collection of items I hope to relay the beauty of the feminine form with the attributes of glass to create striking, elegant silhouettes that hark back to a bygone era and yet retain a modern forward progressive use of glass.
