Liam Reeves - Exclusive COLLECT Artist Profile

"Working exclusively with blown glass, I utilise advanced techniques developed during the medium’s two millennia of rich history..."

"I learn, practice and adapt these methods in order to explore themes and ideas informed by my own experience… An experience influenced in no small way by the evolution of technological progression.

A particular inspiration has been the techniques of the “Golden Age” of Venetian glassmaking (15th- 18th centuries). A period that involved the fastest development of glassmaking skill in history, necessitated by the Venetian States economic dependence on a continuing domination of the market for exquisite glass objects. Goblet-making, canework (including “vetro a reticello”) and the combination of pre-fabricated elements were all developed during this time and all feature strongly in my work.

I utilise these techniques to evoke a complexity in the relationship between pattern and form usually only achievable through the use of computer aided design. I hope to create a link between past and the future of creative expression through the medium of glassblowing."
