Handblown Art Glass ‘Metamorphosis: Change III’ by Imogen Davis
This large black handblown art glass features many curves and one polished facet, representing the change occurring within the chrysalis. The thickness helps accentuate the undulating form to reveal the optical effects within the glass.
A powerful and eye-catching piece of contemporary art which will look great as a centrepiece on a side table, shelf or mantelpiece.
NB All Imogen’s pieces are hand blown and are one-off pieces. A similar piece can be made, on request, in different colours but it will vary from the original form seen here.
Handblown Art Glass Artist
Imogen Davis is a talented artist from the UK. She studied 3D Design at Manchester School of Art, where she was immediately seduced by the medium of hot glass. The tactility of objects is a key factor for Imogen, and her pieces beg her audience to touch as well as to admire them.
Imogen began exploring the use of textures within the glass. She soon realised the beauty in the optical effects one can create using different shaping techniques. Contrasting organic form with clean-cut facets soon became the basis of her work, along with the exploration of various colour techniques.
After graduating from university, Imogen exhibited at New Designers 2016 and was proudly featured in the CGS New Graduate Review.
Imogen is honing her skills and developing into an extremely skilled glass practitioner. She currently works at Daedalian Glass Studios and Loco Glass, with plans to open her own public studio in the near future.
In a short period of time, Imogen has already started to make a name for herself as a glass artist. She is eager to keep pushing her ideas further and exploring the different possibilities with the material. Imogen embraces the challenges of working with glass. She pushes herself to achieve a high standard. Imogen continues to produce new and interesting pieces of decorative sculpture such as this handblown art glass.
