Destruct; Construct

Blown, deconstructed, flameworked and kiln formed glass
22 H x 25 W x 6 D cm

Many “chefs” take their inspiration from deconstructing classical dishes. Taking the ingredients and re-inventing them into a “new“ classic – so why not glass? In this piece blown glass was cut then individually flame worked, constructed into shape and kiln fired.
