MICROMORPHISM

Micromorphism is a series that includes 3 subdivisions. Batavia, Solar Sonic, and Treaded. The idea of this body of work is to is enlarge a small object or or bring a distant object closer. The main inspiration for these subdivisions are corals in the ocean, outer space, and textiles.

Each of these subdivisions use the glass vessel as a canvas to display these micro or distant objects. Taking one aspect from this viewpoint and using it to create repetitive pattern. An example would be looking at one single coral in the ocean and repeating its colors and shape over and over again to make a large glass tile. This tile will later be rolled up hot around a glass bubble or collar to make large vessel. I use this blown glass process to create a 3 dimensional canvas for my murrine and pattern to be displayed. This is also relates to how coral would grow on the surface of live rock in the ocean. Taking whatever form it has as a foundation to grow.
