The Artist - Ian Palfrey
Ian Palfrey started working and creating with glass late in life, this progressed to completing a degree in Plymouth college of Art in Devon. His pieces are inspired by a metal plane his grandfather had made, he wanted to replicate the plane in glass but thought that it needed something extra, so added the glass bubbles. Blowing these bubbles in clear glass demonstrated that they did not detract from the coloured plane, only enhanced it. The Different coloured planes can be swapped around between other bubbles and can be grouped together to achieve different effects.
