GlassLab 2015


These works were created during a week-long symposium at Cesty Skla, Sazava, Cz, at which Vicky was an invited artist.

The artists were provided with a range ready-made glass objects from local glass factories, including cut crystal, functional household glassware and lighting. The studios were available to combine these pieces in any way, including the use of cutting, engraving and polishing equipment, kilns and some access to the glassblowing facilities.

The pieces 'Gamma' and 'Satellite' are constructed from ready-made elements, cut and assembled. 'Pi' incorporates ready-mades with hand blown glass and water and is a kinetic, fluid sculpture.
'Zen' uses layers of glass, with the internal pieces cut and engraved. The outer pieces are partially sandblasted, so that the inner pattern is only revealed with projected light.
