Some of my recent work includes:
-The Tonntracha Chandelier, commissioned by a private client for their London home. Made up of over 300 individually lampworked components, laser cut acrylic fittings this piece was designed to show of the optical beauty of glass, whilst giving energetic movement to the room.
-Flop Lights ii & iii were selected and exhibited recently as part of Rising Stars 2021 in the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham. Made up of over 1300 individually lampworked components, these pieces came together in a flexible framework that aims to challenge peoples’s perception that glass is ‘too fragile’.
-Flop Lights ii & iii have also just been selected for the National Glass Centre Glass Prize 2021.
-Research features heavily in my practice. I have spoken at conferences in UWE, Making Futures and the Glass Art Society Conference. In 2020 I published my first paper in the renouned Making Futures Journal https://makingfutures.pca.ac.uk/journal/laura-quinn
