Specialising in kiln-formed glass, Kate Courtney-Taylor’s work explores the inherent properties of the material, focusing on how to take its fluidity and freeze it in time. “The beauty that is created is an exploration of memories that flow through my existence,” notes Courtney-Taylor. “Often focused on trauma and the associated pain, these memories result in beauty and strength.” She is inspired by the links between the grotesque and the sublime, creating sculptures that explore interchanging feelings of neglect, obsession, conflict and beauty. Glass flows between elements, allowing the artist to sculpt pieces with a laid-out plan but leaving the glass to perform the conclusion.
