During the holiday period I was lucky enough to spend a day in Alane Ortega’s Studio in Salisbury, Maryland with her and another artist Morgan Kinne. I got to use materials and methods I’ve never gotten to before. Shaping and cutting glass, constructing forms from these shapes, building up a structural object soldered together. The process is so satisfying, the need for concentration and awareness of the objects you’re working with has opened my eyes to how I can utilise this method in other works. In general this experience has taught me skills I need to know to progress my practice and widen my horizons.
