My new series of copper dust drawings on glass is growing. These works have a rich texture and interact with the lighting conditions in subtle ways. The copper dust is fused to the glass in the kiln where it also turns black with a halo of either blue or brick red depending on the type of glass.
I have devised a floating “L” hook method of hanging them so the pieces stand an inch or so away from the wall and cast a shadow. These pieces are best displayed on a white wall so the light reflects through them.
When drawing, I am exploring the fleeting moment and working quickly to capture an image as it slips through my mind. For this reason there are various themes emerging. The concepts of time and consciousness, things lost and things buried emerge.
