Thread Roots 2
Hand Blown Glass 24% Lead Crystal
The Artist - Lynn Baker
I am a graduate of the International Glass Centre and am passionate about glass. When in its molten state I can blow, stretch, bend and form it in many ways. After annealing the finished object has such distinctive and unique properties that I cannot obtain using any other material. Inspiration for the ‘bottle’ forms has come from roots and seed heads and a lifetime love of the allotment and the village show. The flowers here in the garden are kiln formed and are inspired by ‘Queen of the Night’, an orchid cactus that flowers only when dark and is said to have strong healing properties for women.
