Glass Assemblage

Refining a long tradition of collage, with a nod to Victorian Shadow Boxes, these works explore the design concepts of Ikebana using glass as bas-relief sculpture. I utilize `found frames' to make these works but their parameters are broad, sometimes utilizing cardboard boxes, sometimes incorporating found object as well as glass and employing various backgrounds such as timber and, most recently, drawing and photo-montage. While they adhere to all the principals of design these works (like many of my artworks) are playful; they do not take themselves too seriously.
