2009 / Slumped glass

This project is our first exploration of slumped glass technique. We were intrigued by delaminating and deconstructing colour patterns traditionally understood in two dimensions into three dimensional constructs. We define two layers of glass, each with a striped surface composed of different colours, separated in section by a 16mm layer of clear glass. The clear glass in between the layers creates a different reading for the object when it is viewed obliquely and when it is viewed directly. When looked at directly, it is a fairly conventional application of pattern making loosely related to plaid. If looked at obliquely, the intermediate layer of clear glass between the two colourful striped layers creates great spatial complexity.
