‘Tempestas’
Furious agitation,
commotion or tumult

“And ‘twixt the green sea
and the azured vault
Set roaring war to the dread r
attling thunder”

'I felt that sand casting would
be an ideal method of creating
a piece to depict the
underwater turmoil generated
by Propsperos’s storm .

I have then cut and faceted it
to reflect his control of the
released forces.'

Sand cast, cut and polished. Bullseye glass

I specialise in creating site-specific cast glass forms which are inspired by an environment. In this case my piece is created in direct response to Shakespeare’s play.
