Title1 Selected

Fused glass and an enamel transfer.

The square dishes are based on some plant photographs from my garden and the subsequent watercolour studies I did. Abstracted designs evolved by codifying the dominant colours of the seasonal plants, and using the ground plan of my garden as the compositional structure. The glass enamel transfer was made from a drawing I did from Botticelli’s painting the ‘Birth of Venus’. I had enamel transfers made over 30 years ago while at the RCA, and never used them. I thought a single transfer could represent the sculptures in my garden, and to use them justified my hoarding instincts for keeping the transfers for so long.
