Scottish artist Graham Muir using techniques perfected over the last decade, achieves delicate shapes that seem almost chiseled or fractured, but are in fact accomplished when working while the glass is still hot.
“I find glass to be a material that does not respond well to being dominated by the artist. For me the concept of the work is just the starting point for a conversation between the artists idea and the material. The artist flags up the idea, the medium responds and the discussion begins. However the material must not dominate proceedings either and hot glass, as most who work in it know, can be very persuasive in having its own way” – he shares via his statement.
