Glassworks

I have been working away at the glass fronted amulet boxes over the past few months as one of several strands in my MA degree work. I was inspired years ago by an exhibition by photographer Fay Godwin and have wanted to work on something which acknowledged this influence. I have finally achieved this with my glass ‘nets’ which obscure and disguise the contents of the boxes they rest on. I had fun photographing this one against the sun-dappled asbestos walls of my 1950s garage!

Temporary nets and networks – from a pavement and a drain grid / mesh (photographed in Colwyn Bay, Wales), through to flock of pigeons outside of Euston Station, London and then, finally, a tree decorated with mementos and remembrances at the stone circle ‘Long Meg and her Daughters’ in the Lake District. In Scotland, I think they are known as ‘Clootie Trees’
