After a visit to a car wreckage scrap yard I began experimenting with printing techniques. A couple of the pieces are under the printing menu. The inspiration for the sculpture below came from seeing human hand imprints on a crashed windscreen in the yard. It is made using the smashed windscreen glass I collected there, the remainder coming from a large pane of toughened glass which I shattered. This was a very emotional piece to work on.
Below: ‘Spirits rising’ took many months to make, it was a very gradual process of experimenting and finally placing and layering and waiting for the layers to dry before repeating and shaping.
