Amy is inspired by liminal space, geometric forms and textural surfaces, empowering process and makers marks. Casting these in glass to highlight the detail and depth of overlooked objects.
Amy’s new ‘Mooring’ collection of earrings and necklaces are inspired by rusty rings and weathered sea glass. The rings are hand modelled in wax first and retain her maker’s marks on the surface from the process of glass casting. They are combined with hand-woven hemp cord as a nod to Plymouth’s Nautical heritage as one of three rope making sites in the UK.
Her Glass, Silver & Brass ‘inside the print’ earrings are cast from 3D printed spheres, they emphasise the structural details which are created by digital hollowing reminiscent of cityscapes which is hidden from view when printed. Read Amy’s blog to find out more.
As a specialist in mould making for glass Amy is also casting highly textured glass panels with a view to creating larger scale sculptures, based on walls and windows.
In 2016 Amy completed a large commission called The Cold Truth for Effervescent, Children’s Charity Barnardo’s and The Arts Council England. Creating moulds of 50 pairs of shoes, some cast in glass and some ice for an exhibition curated by young people. The Cold Truth @ Radiant.
