Title:Bezhin Meadow

Description: The engraving is based on the short story from The Hunting Sketches by the
Russian writer Ivan Turgenev, published in 1852. The hunter comes across a group
of boys from the village who have come to spend the night in the meadow guarding
the horses. He listens to them as they scare each other by telling ghost stories. It
is not an exact illustration of the story, which takes place entirely at night. The
engraving shows six boys, each one modelled on one of the engraver’s grandsons.
In the original story there are only five boys.

Title:Nobody knows what the problem really is (JIMAN)

Description: I express both playfulness as well as other contrasting emotional states through my glass work, by using a kitschy aesthetic, which is inspired by the sub-culture of adults playing with and collecting toys (Kidult toy culture).
The glass doll ‘JIMAN’ in my artwork ‘Nobody knows what the problem really is’ visualises my hidden emotions that are caused by social pressure and microaggression from everyday interactions in the UK as an Asian minority female.
The glass dolls has its name. By giving the specific name, I wish my glass art dealing with dark content would ultimately approach viewers feel joyful and bright. The images on each glass of the doll are hand-cut onto vinyl, sandblasted and then finally engraved.

Description: My engraving is a celebration of the good times about being a child. I chose the wording because the meaning can be interpreted in more than one way. It was an unusual and challenging piece of glass to work with because the prominent centre dome needed to be integral to the design. The research into the design was a lot of fun too. I’d forgotten just how many different ways children enjoy playing.

Title:In the Invisible Places

Description: Inspired by three lines from Alice Oswald’s poem ‘Ideogram for Green’.

‘In the invisible places Where the first leaves start Green breathes growth’

Reassuring words expressing hope, the magic of nature and the promise of new beginnings.

Most of the engraving is on the underside with the central sprig of blossom, and the curl of a root on the top surface.

The two colours of this asymmetric piece seemed to be a perfect fit for the inscription. The earthy brown mystery of the rim and the lush green of the centre.
