2005 Finalist

For Lust

Blown, cast and coldworked glass
50 H x 19 W x 41 D cm

I have for the last few years been looking at the element of time and how it causes us to section our lives. This piece is a chance to place some of my ideas into a digestible form. The cold worked surface is a reflection of corrosion, i.e. a movement of time. There is also an inside outside thing that is part and parcel of our existence.

Attempting to get a viewer to look into the piece a thought begins, and once a thought starts can it be rescinded?
