Our new featured artist exhibition series starts off with a showcase of beautifully crafted kiln-formed glass by Jeremy Dane Morris.
Dates June 2nd to June 29th
Opening Reception with Artist in attendance June 2nd, 2 pm to 5 pm
StatementThis body of work was developed out of a need to capture the movement of slumping glass within his finished works themselves. However, the very nature of the solid objectivity of kilnformed glass has proved to be quite a challenge.
His determination has brought us this skillfully crafted series of work called Twist. By layering clear and opaque glass next to playful transparent colours, Jeremy is able to not only capture the unique way in which glass moves when heated slowly but also the artful way glass is able to bend and twist light.
