The making off

Her masters voice

'Her Masters Voice' collection contains glass designs that are created to question the craft. Searching for a balance between the skills of a master glassblower and their apprentice. The collection is made up of objects that invite viewers to examine craft and the meaning of mastership. Providing a stage to let questions arise; do you see the qualities of the master and how do we value the imperfections from the learning hand of a young craftsman? What does it mean to be a master? Is the quality of education good enough to become a master?
