dc.descriptionA series of centrifugally cast lead crystal forms for the national biennial competition of British studio glass.
dc.description.abstract“Strata” is a family of forms linked in terms of shape and surface finish in such a way that one relates to another and the condition of one generates the other. This project extends previous developments through an emphasis on the relational aspect of the forms created, and through experimenting with clear glass in relation to light. The project used the centrifuge process producing clear unadulterated glass forms; optically pure so that the relief and light qualities transcend one form and leap into the next. Where other pieces are unique – this is a family of objects developed within a concept of natural systems rather than the industrial concept of repetitive forms. The process involves the design, production and testing of single-use resin-sand moulds. Working from a reproducible base form an original mould was generated; Garfoot then worked into the mould itself which resulted at once in consistency and variation. The singular nature of each cast object allowed for the creation of the family of pieces.
