Whispering Sweet Nothings. Recycling Narratives

Whilst studying Geology at the University of Edinburgh Hannah became fascinated by the mineralogy and the reactions between various elements, metals and compounds. This led her towards a passion for the alchemy of glass.
Capturing the nostalgic imagery of childhood, exposing hidden narratives, through cast sculptural glass stands at the core of Hannah’s work.
Passionate about sustainability and recycling,. Sweet Nothings are a series of individual, unique Cast Glass figures. Usually found in pairs, whispering ‘Sweet Nothings’ to one another.
What are they whispering?
‘Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.’ (Dr Seuss, The Lorax).
