Art Description

Sculpture: Glass on Glass.

This piece is inspired by my research into the Alchemical process and looking at the philosophical meanings behind certain materials.

Lead according to alchemy is known as the base, raw material of the process. It represents primordial substance, beginnings and undeveloped states.
It is also associated with the colour black, which in several eastern philosophies also is the colour from which all life emerges.
I wanted to capture this by creating a turbulent black substance within the glass that appeared similar to flicking flames.
