Sons and Mothers Volumes I & II
Sandblasted, fused, slumped, cast and painted glass
20 H x 13.7 W x 3.5 D cm
Glass is a most unlikely material for books. It does not resemble paper; it does not behave like paper. The ‘reader’ can read through the layers or ‘pages’, from the front or from the back, or even through the spine. So even though I have drawn attention to the form of the book by using a material which is very unusual for that form, I have paradoxically used one which ‘disappears’ and so it is the content that is obvious.
These volumes are about my maternal grandfather and his mother, and my maternal great-grandfather and his mother.
