Recycling Narratives. Whispering Sweet Nothings.
Whilst studying Geology at the University of Edinburgh I became fascinated by the reactions between various elements, metals and compounds. This led me towards a passion for the alchemy of glass.
Passionate about sustainability and recycling, using only 100% recycled glass, and found objects. I have developed a series of individual, unique Cast Glass figures, called Sweet Nothings. Usually found in pairs, whispering ‘Sweet Nothings’ to one another.
What are they whispering? ‘ Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.’ (Dr Seuss, The Lorax)
