Fused Glass Platter ‘Connect II’ by Roberta Mason
The Connect II shaped and fused glass platter by Roberta Mason makes for the perfect centrepiece. The bold statement made by its use of cream, brown, and turquoise are in keeping with the Connect I glass bowl that preceded it.
The Connect II is beautifully constructed, made from fused glass that will reflect natural light to perfection when placed on a table or mantelpiece. The fusion of brown and turquoise tell a tale of the land and sea, the bold cream stripes bringing out the inner significance of the piece.
A stunning centrepiece for any lounge room or kitchen, the Connect II fused glass platter will never lose its original charm. Each time you look into the platter, the ocean and the land will tell a different tale, the fusion of solid and liquid and the land and the sea.
Fused Glass Platter Artist
Roberta Mason is the hugely talented artist behind this beautiful fused glass platter. Currently studying for an MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art London, Roberta is a burgeoning talent within her field. Her work is strongly influenced by water, her kilnforming and hot glass techniques creating masterpieces that explore perspectives, as well as our relationship with the environment.
Roberta’s first exhibition was in 2010, and her latest works are on display at the Glass Pyramid Gallery in York. By attending Master Classes in glass, Roberta is constantly expanding her knowledge, as well as strengthening and perfecting her techniques. An artist with unstoppable energy, Roberta was highly commended in 2015 by the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers. In 2016, she won a scholarship to attend her Master Classes with Dr. Gerry King.
Roberta’s relationship with glass and water could best be described as a passionate love affair. By understanding the properties of glass, its opacity, and transparency, Roberta creates works of art that contain depth and inner narratives. Taking her inspiration from Aristotle and his quote “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance,” Roberta is an artist, who is constantly evolving, her latest interest being in 3D Design.
