Kiln Fused Glass ‘Oculus Aventurine Eclipse’ by Elizabeth Sinkova

Inspired by images beamed back from the Hubble and James Webb space telescopes, this Kiln fused glass ‘Eye’ is a fabulous depiction of a nebula.

The piece is full of mystery, as are nebulae, which make up parts of galaxies, along with stars, dust and gas.

Sinkova invites the viewer to stop, pause and contemplate the vastness of space – our star being one of 400 billion in our Milky Way galaxy, which is one of the 2 trillion galaxies we know of.

The piece was made by melting specialist glass in the kiln, followed by further surface refining to get to the finished artwork. Presented on a forged steel stand bespoke made for the piece.

N.B. The images shown are an example of the ones in the series. Each piece is handmade and therefore there will be small variations in colour and pattern. Each one is completely unique and signed by the artist.

Elizabeth Sinkova Glass Artist Statement

Being an expressive artist, I intend to create contemporary artwork full of colour, motion, and life.

In the process of designing, I am not only influenced by the brief itself but also by the context of the architectural setting. I am often inspired by nature and its elements, which assist me in capturing my ideas and integrating them into architectural artwork.

Techniques that characterise my work are airbrushed transparent enamels combined with freehand painting glass fusing and etching. I also love using the effects of optical glass and reflective surfaces interacting with direct light. These allow me to explore the true properties of glass and thus reveal its inner beauty.

My ultimate aim is to convey my vision into a unique piece of art that is not only an uplifting compliment to its building and surroundings but also an aesthetic element, evoking positive feelings in the viewers.
