Mathias and I met Richard Glass at the private view to Flameworks Christmas show “ART2GO” at the Royal William Yard in Plymouth. Having been aware of his work for some time it was great to meet him in person.
We are very pleased that Richard has been exhibiting with 45 Southside since. He started his creative career in Fine Art, experimenting amongst others with light and transparency. This lead on to an interest in glass and an BA honours degree from Plymouth College of Art, followed by an MA from Sunderland University. Richard is now back in Plymouth. We are currently exhibiting his ‘Splash’ series. The work recreates the energy and movement found in droplet of liquid in glass. The subtle changes in colouring and the hand-blown shapes create stunning sculptural pieces capturing the energy and movement of a liquid Splash.
The vases below are from the series, but provide a serene and elegant functionality, but without lacking in energy.
