Vessel Bowls ‘Adriatic Seashells‘ by Hazel MacLennan
These art glass vessel bowls ‘Adriatic Seashells’ are inspired by the Croatian coastline on a scuba diving trip. Never before has Hazel dived in a sea so clear, calm and blue. These glass vessel bowls are an ode to the ocean and the life that thrives beneath the surface. Mimicking the shape of a seashell nestled in it’s beautiful, deep blue paradise.
These pieces are purely sculptural and by the nature of their design, have round bottoms so are not steady.
Flat bases can be fitted to the art glass pieces if desired.
Vessel Bowls Artist
Already successful in her own right, Hazel has recently graduated with a Three Dimensional Design Degree from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen.
After graduating Hazel became an artist in residence at Gray’s School, assisting other budding glass artists with their own styles and techniques and learning a lot herself at the same time.
Hazel MacLennan, who hails from Aberdeenshire herself, specialised in glass and ceramics during her course. She works primarily with warm glass techniques, experimenting with kiln formed techniques such as slip casting, glass fusing, mold making and drop forming.
Hazel adores the “fascinating medium” of glass and constantly tries to push the boundaries and develop practice in both her work and in the work of the students under her tutelage.
As a designer and as an artist, Hazel feels that she has a responsibility to draw people’s attention to current global environmental issues. She uses her platform as an artist to disseminate ways that people can collaborate and join forces to tackle these important pressing issues.
Hazel tries to be aware of the environment when designing vessel bowls and tries to keep wastage and electricity usage to a minimum.
Hazel hopes to have her own Glass studio very soon.
