‘Rock Pool Suite No.3’ glass sculpture by Stephen Foster
This 90mm diameter orb is solid hot worked glass made with many components including canes and murrine which is cup cased and iridised. Once cold, it is cut and polished.
Of all the materials man has created, I feel it is only glass than can compete with the beauties found in nature. I have an insatiable appétit to explore the exciting medium of glass, to create expressive objects of beauty that are uniquely designed and completely made by my hands.
Always focused on skilfully producing superior quality, dynamic shapes, exciting interiors and captivating surfaces. In this I am hopefully setting new standards whilst preserving old traditions.
Glass to me is the most captivating material to look at and work with. If you are being true to the material, then you find much inspiration will come from the glass itself. I try to exploit the inherent qualities of transparency and fluidity whilst letting light dance across its surface and through its inner world, capturing a moment in time.
Emulating an underwater scene. Solid hot worked glass made with many pre-made components canes and murrine then cup cased and iridised. Once cold the glass is cut and polished.
