Amanda Simmons makes kilnformed glass vessels, playing with gravity in the kiln. 'Manipulating mass, heat, colour and time I aim to create complex, elusive work that has intense colour and pattern which reacts to the light it is placed in. I use opaque glass powders to construct my work because of its varying translucency as the form elongates in the kiln. I finish the kiln fired pieces using many coldworking processes to shape and mark the glass including sandblasting, hand lapping and diamond point and wheel engraving.
We have collected objects ever since we have had somewhere to put things.
