Edmond Byrne, ‘Large Texture Glass Bowl with Kaolin Patina in Amber’, 2015, A Future Made

Edmond’s technique involves blowing glass into hand-made moulds. He lines them with materials including clay, fabric, plaster and metal to create patinas and cracks on the surface of the vessels. His process is inspired by the work of Geoffrey Baxter, a glass blower from the 1970’s who worked with Whitefriars Glass, due to their similarity in creative process. Edmond works from drawing, teasing out the forms of vessels and constructing the moulds from his abstract pieces.
