Brenden French uses the stunning colours of nature in this Sunset Bowl in the versatile medium of glass.
It is extremely satisfying working with glass in its molten state. It is immediate and spontaneous yet I am increasingly aware of a historical relevance for its function. My blown vessels concentrate more on technical dexterity and colour applications than on constructing narratives. My aim with this work is to be playful in personalising technique.
It’s a totally different thing when working with glass cold, but no less satisfying. Introducing kiln forming and casting processes is invigorating the scope of my
practice. Time is stretched in a very different thread. I recognise the true evolution of my commitment lies here.
