Eternal Exchange XVIII : Circular Mirrored Glass Sculpture with Gradated Blue Painted Exterior

Year : 2021
Dimensions : L34 x W34 x H14 cm

Sally’s ‘Eternal Exchange’ sculptures are sublime experiences of earthly, unearthly places. In this series of cast glass sculptures, various forms and scales have emerged. Hand carved internal protrusions have subtle variations, some are pronounced, some eroded, others disappear from sight. Mercurial space, always in motion, created by hand mirroring on polished curved planes opens up new dimensions, at times remote, that seemingly were not there before. Layered, textured outer polychromatic painted surfaces, rich in their visual absorption are alluringly tactile. Each piece is a timeless, associative narrative, with many possible outcomes.

Eternal Exchange XVIII was selected for the Coburg Prize for Contemporary Glass 2022. The competition is open to professional artists living in, or who originate from, Europe and who work with glass as a material creating one off artworks.
