Description

In her “Pate de Verre Vessel” series, artist Amanda Taylor explores how individual colors and lines interact with each other, how light moves through the vessel, and tactile feel of the form.  These are all attributes of modern day art glass and the forms she creates.

“The first step is to create a plaster/silica mold that has a ultra-smooth surface on which to start to create the piece.  Working with the damp plaster/silica mold, I lay stencils or create freehand designs using sifted glass powder. I then create a “paste” of glass frit in various colors and compact this over top of the powder designs. This is then placed into the kiln and fired to create a solid blank.  Once cooled I decide  how deep and what the shape of the blank will be and choose the mold(s) to achieve this. The glass blank is then placed onto or into the mold and put back into the kiln to 1250F so that it will take on the shape. This can be repeated in several different molds in order to achieve the final piece.”

By drawing inspiration from places that I have visited or live within , I use my glass work as a way to creatively interpret the ever present beauty touches my soul. I use light, color, and form to create a sense of place in my work.
