TRACY POLITTI - GRIMGLASS

I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH GLASS FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS, HAVING LEARNT FROM AN ESTABLISHED GLASS ARTIST IN YORK.

MY INITIAL INSPIRATION IS TAKEN FROM LYRICS OF FAVOURITE SONGS AND POEMS.

I POSITION THESE ALONGSIDE SCENES FROM ANTIQUE MAGIC LANTERN SLIDES, IN ORDER TO EVOKE IDEAS AND MEMORIES RELAVANT TO THE WORKS I HAVE CHOSEN TO FIRE INTO THE GLASS.

OFTEN COLOURS REFLECT THE SUBJECT, OR THE ACTUAL COLOURS IN THE SLIDES SELECTED.

I DO THIS ALONGSIDE MY FULL TIME OCCUPATION AND SO COMMISSIONS ARE CAREFULLY CONSIDERED.

PLEASE SEE SOME PICTURES OF MY WORK BELOW BUT WHY NOT VISIT AND ENJOY MY WORK DIRECTLY

I EMBARKED ON A POTTERY COURSE AT A NIGHT CLASS AND DISCOVERED I LOVED WORKING WITH CLAY AND THROWING POTS.

THIS IS MY FIRST POTTERY COLLECTION AND MY INSPIRATION WAS FROM A FAMILY HOLIDAY SAILING IN THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA. I LOVED THE VIVID BLUES AND GREENS OF THE SEAS AND SKIES AND WANTED TO RECREATE THESE COLOURS AND TEXTURES IN MY GLAZES.

IN SEPTEMBER 2018, I AM STARTING A DREGEE COURSE IN CONTEMPORARY CRAFTS AT OUR LOCAL COLLEGE AND LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING AND DEVELOPING MY ART SKILLS WITH DIFFERENT 2D AND 3D MEDIUMS AND AREAS OF EXPERTISE.
