Object history note

Artist's Statement:
"We work with glass for many reasons. For Ben, it is a strong attraction to the process of working in the Venetian style of glassblowing. For me - I am inspired to work with glass by what is possible in terms of carving and decorating the forms and working with the light to generate a breathtaking effect. For us - glass is a medium for colour and light as well as an opportunity to explore design and we look for ways to use these uplifting elements in ways that are original."
