Browse original glassware by Botanical Glass, inspired by natural structures such as algae, lichen, moss, grasses, ferns, and fungi.
Botanical Glass is interested in the complexity of life- how within each organism are other organisms, each living its own unique existence, layer upon layer of complexity yet a universal oneness, the feeling that we are all the same thing- a system, in communion, a beautiful symphony. It is this blissful, expansive and calm space that I access through nature which is what I am trying to communicate and share in the medium of glass.
Other inspirations are- light, the magical atmosphere it can create in the landscape but also the way it interacts with glass- shadows, reflections, the qualities of matt and shiny surfaces.
This results in work which intends to catalogue nature and sets out to create unique glassware's which become natural history artefacts in their own right.
