bodies of desire


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 through casting techniques glass and hand drawn lamp working , they represent a broad range of experiences of intimacy, contact and insularity – generously contributed by a diverse collection of couples and individuals . These body casts are often exhibited alongside the  kiss sculptures or exhibited autonomously.

New casts can be created on a commission basis. Contact for further information.
