Precariously resting atop a pedestal, these wave-like glass vessels by Scottish artist Graham Muir seem to defy gravity as if frozen in a moment before crashing into the ocean.
Using techniques perfected over the last decade, Muir achieves delicate shapes that seem almost chiseled or fractured, but are in fact accomplished when working while the glass is still hot.
“For me the concept of the work is just the starting point for a conversation between the artist’s idea and the material.”
“The artist flags up the idea, the medium responds and the discussion begins.”
“However the material must not dominate proceedings either and hot glass, as most who work in it know, can be very persuasive in having its own way.”
