Abstract Glass Sculptures ‘Imagine V’ by Laura McKinley
Laura McKinley’s abstract glass sculptures are always imaginative and intriguing. ‘Imagine V’ is a spectacular piece that requires plenty of space and light to give it the attention it so obviously deserves. The purity of white along with the perfect cut and smoothness of shape gives the sculpture a sense of tranquillity. Whilst the bright red circular piece in the centre adds a dramatic focus.
Spanning 60cm in length this glass sculpture makes for an incredible centrepiece. Perfect in a large foyer, boardroom or entrance hall. Laura’s abstract glass sculptures will always make a statement and will prove to be a great talking point. A great piece for those who love modern interior design and glass art.

Laura Mckinley’s fascination for glass as a creative medium arises by the way it influences her initial thoughts and ideas. The spontaneity of the hot glass demands instant visual judgements that lead to shifts in design. The glass making process enables Laura to make her explorations of volume, scale and the interplay of form and colour into a physical art form.
Serendipity and the unexpected often point the way to the next starting point for making. Therefore Laura’s work is an invitation to engage with the tranquil beauty of the incidental.
“I am intrigued by the contrast between the fragile, serious nature of glass and the playfulness of the form. I aim to create something that looks as though it should be touched and toyed with, yet leads the viewer to question this, because of the fragility of the material”.
Laura studied glass at Buckinghamshire University. After graduating with a BA in 2008, she was awarded a scholarship to study at the world-famous Pilchuck glass school, USA. She has recently completed her MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art.
