Amanda Taylor

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.

Description

Artist Amanda Taylor uses several different techniques to achieve a realistic representation of the natural beauty she sees all around her.  She begins with a “blank canvas” of glass (some with a background of mountain silhouettes), then assembles the landscapes by placing glass powder where she would like to position tree trunks.  The trunks are pre-fused glass powder components.  All the tree branches are made from glass strings that she creates by pulling glass into very thin branch like shapes using a torch flame. Once the branches are pulled, they are arranged onto the tree trunks.  Custom color combinations of crushed glass are then placed as the ground & leaves within the landscapes. The completed glass piece is then heated in a glass kiln at a low temperature to produce texture instead of a perfectly flat surface. This texture encourages a sense of depth and allows light to reflect, adding life and realism to my imagery.
