• Unique Silver Natural Gemstone Jewellery and Art Glass • Perfect for Collecting and Gifting • Handmade with Love in the heart of England by Corrina Field •
An elemental art glass vessel, made with raw oxide copper to imbue an aqua blue tone into the clear body of the glass. The Ritual collection made as part a recent Artist in Residence program. During this time I explored the creation of vessels using various methods to add tone, depth and a sense of experience.
I fell in love with the ancient practice of glass making 20 years ago and immediately recognized the versatility of the material.
My work is influenced by the underlying principles of Scandinavian and Japanese design aesthetics and their harmony with nature.
The traditional Japanese aesthetic, wabi-sabi is often described as ‘imperfect, flawed beauty’. Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
The idea is that being surrounded by natural, changing, unique objects helps us connect to our real world and escape potentially stressful distractions is central to the artworks I create.
I love to embody these principles in my work by combining glass with raw materials, the outcome resembles the colours and textures found in geological formations.
I use a variety of techniques which appear to mimic the passage of time. The glass I create becomes imbued with an ancient aesthetic, a symbol of fragile and impermanent beauty, an echo of the natural world and the human experience.
My current works are blown or sculpted from clear furnace glass and blended with oxides. Each piece is gently shaped and further transformed within a hand-built mould inside a kiln. This technique behaves like a cocoon, creating the conditions for the glass inside to transform.
Vessels are a recurrent form in my work; for me, they symbolize femininity and receptivity. I see glass as a medium to absorb and reflect experiences in the same way that we do.
Glass is the perfect medium to represent the alchemical process, I feel that I’m also transformed.
