Eternal Exchange XXVI : Crystal clear glass sculpture with silver and antique mirror carvings

Year : 2023
Dimensions : L50 x D32 x H14.0 cm

Eternal Exchange XXVI is part of the permanent museum collection of Musée du Verre François Décorchemont.

Sally’s Eternal Exchange series of crystal clear glass sculptures with dynamic energy filled interiors express experiences of earthly, unearthly places.

Sally’s Eternal Exchange series originated in 2018 from Arctic region research sea voyages around northern Norway; initiated by experience of physical motion and interchange of the elements land, sea and sky.

Recently Sally has developed the series to encompass wider research thoughts around continuous energy exchange across hidden depths of the universe, from atoms within ourselves to the matter of black holes. Sally is using crystal clear glass as a metaphor for space.

Sally is working with the fact that light is central to our lives and has so many unique properties and is central to research in sciences and new discoveries with its interaction with matter offers a changing place.
The Latin word for mirror, ‘speculum’ gives us the verb to speculate. Sally’s sculptures invite you to immerse yourself in the complex realm of what you see, what you think you see and so what is potential. Each piece is a timeless, associative narrative, with many possible outcomes.

Eternal Exchange XXVI featured in Sally and Richard’s joint exhibition, Inspirer Expirer, at the internationally important Musée du Verre François Décorchemont in Conches-en-Ouche in Normandy, France in 2023.
