Amanda’s work has a masterful fluency that depends entirely on the casting being completed in a single stage. As the molten glass begins to solidify, she intervenes, manipulating it with her hands, coaxing new shapes to materialize.
It is an intense, engaging process which captures the exact moment the sculpture comes into being. Amanda replicates the essential characteristics of her designs, while slight variations in shape and color only add to their beguiling, dramatic charm.
Each piece of glass is a subtle collaboration of artistry and chemistry. Unusually, Amanda produces all the raw materials used to colour the glass herself. The Oxides used in the process are what help to define each sculpture. The end result is always something unique – an original work of art.
