this vessel is inspired by sea sponges (porifera).
It’s all about the sea. Roberta’s work is inspired by the formation of waves, the language of bubbles and the amazing world of strange and wonderful marine creatures. Her aim is to share this passion through her work. She hopes that, in the words of Rachel Carson, “The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.” The creation of Roberta’s work involves using traditional glass techniques, in non-traditional ways, to create unique, sculptural work and installations. She feels that the transparency and movement of hot glass captures a snapshot of life in a way few materials can. Her journey into art has come via science and technology and she has recently graduated with an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art in London. She is a finalist in both the Art-Rooms Awards and Visual Art Open UK & International Emerging Artist Awards for 2019. Roberta has work in private collections and has exhibited her work internationally.
