Stewart Hearn - Thames River Vases
Hand blown clear glass, incorporating powdered coloured glass and silver leaf.
This collection of vases has been created as a series of blown glass oversized vessels, which reference the ubiquitous discarded plastic bottles we all live with.
Each one is a translation from memory of these containers and is not meant to be an exacting replica. The ‘larger than life’ scale creates a powerful and intimidating reminder of the creeping plastic pollution in our waterways. Translucent blue and green colours emphasize the ambiguous language of plastic and glass, with additional subtle silver leaf scattered throughout the forms elevating the status of this detritus and suggesting an opportunity to value and care for it instead of discarding it.
They vary in size from 50 to 60 cms in height. Contact for details of available vases.
