Exhibitions 2018

Surrey Sculpture Society at Landmark Arts Centre, Teddington : Friday 22nd November – Sunday 25th November 2018

I am really thrilled to have been selected to join this SSS exhibition with my Fractaala ® series

——————————————————————————–

Fractaalas are glass plaques designed to decorate a garden/landscape setting as a focal point or light catcher.

They are made from murrini (also known as millefiori) which are pieces of chopped cane which I pull myself from my vitrigraph kiln. A wide variety of colours is possible.

Each Fractaala® is named after an island around the world (something within the piece will resonate with it’s island name) and is completely unique. Each is engraved accordingly on the reverse side.

Many murrini must be made before they are then placed together and fused (twice).

They have individually designed iron stands made by a local blacksmith. They can withstand all weathers although it may be an idea to remove the plaque from the stand if a gale is forecast.

The word Fractaala® is a blended word.
