Amanda makes kiln formed glass vessels, playing with gravity in the kiln. Manipulating mass, heat, colour and time aiming to create complex, elusive work that has intense colour and pattern which reacts to the light it is placed in. Using opaque glass powders to construct her work because of its varying translucency as the form elongates during the firing process. The glass is finished using many cold working processes to shape and mark the glass including sandblasting, hand lapping, diamond point and wheel engraving.
