About The Artwork

The yawning idea of class & the establishment of class along with a passing thought of its future being merely a museum piece lead to this work. I also took this working journey with a playful experimentation of Artistic processes whilst seeking to retain a relative formality. This piece is part of a series of Boxed works which have many connotations & reference points. The Artwork is made as follows. The box & attached base is solid mahogany. The carved Animal figure at the top & carved feet either side at the front are hardwood from a Victorian chair. As you view inside, the rear is float glass draped with antique textile, the two sides are mirrored & the floor is red velvet upon which is a hardwood plinth & in front of which is a Victorian smoking pipe.The figurative glass rises from the plinth via a specifically hand made steel bracket. The body is an experimental combination & fusion of float glass, industrial glass & lead crystal glass which has then been sandblasted in certain areas. The diagonal strip of green netting textile containing green ivy leaves made from tiny pieces of glass, running from right to left across the body as we view, is a section of a 1920's dress. Above this, at the neck of the figure is another specific hand made steel bracket upon which sits a rose pink glass acting as the head & mouthpiece for Class in glass. CheersNC
