Developed through private casting sessions, open calls and postal contributions between 1998 and 2011 – this extended series of sculptural works in glass explore a variety of spaces, textures and impressions of desire through their realisation in positive and negative form.

Created using a range of  hand drawn lamp working and casting techniques glass, they represent a broad range of experiences of intimacy, contact and insularity – generously contributed by a diverse collection of people

These body cast works and the kiss sculptures form an integral part of ‘The Anatomy of Desire’ project and are also exhibited autonomously.
