'Pate de verre vessels with silver leaf and knitted silver wire on Bangor slate base' Label of piece

I really liked this piece, it reminded me of the remains of foam left in the bottom of my mixing bowls which solidify to take the shape of the container. This piece made me think about presenting them because they are something I really enjoy. I find the way they vary depending on the surface they were mixed really interesting. I really enjoy title of this piece "Silver linings" because for me the left overs in the mixing bowl are a silver lining - in a metaphorical sense- to destroying the bowl (technicians suggest I dispose of after so other students don't mix products in them which will react). For this work I think its extremely successful because of the play on words - they are linings of cup shaped things - and they are made with silver wire.
