Snuff Bottles

Kiln formed, sandblasted glass
34 H x 30 W x .1 D cm

This fun series embodies the form of ancient Chinese glass snuff bottles. Here, the internal space is collapsed; the objects are rendered from 3D into a 2D surface, fused and sandblasted with traditional motifs.

This formal transformation illustrates slippage in visual readings between cultures, creating hybrid objects for the viewer.
