Imogen Davis LSDC
Glass Making & Stained Glass
Imogen sources inspiration from various aspects of nature and translates her ideas through creating a variety of tactile blown forms.
The Metamorphosis collection was inspired by changes that occur when a chrysalis transforms into a butterfly or moth. Her handcrafted blown glass sculptures represent that delicate transformation expressing different stages through the process of metamorphosis. The sculptures are organic in form with a tactile surface, yet Imogen uses combinations of faceted sides to invite the viewer into the optical effects created through the undulating body of each piece.
