"We do not always acknowledge the symbiotic relationship that exists between ourselves and our environment. The imagery I create with the use of natural materials evokes an ethereal delicacy and references the fragile balance that exists between ourselves and our habitat." ~ Heather
This piece depicted here is a beautiful portrayal of that symbiotic relationship between ourselves and our environment and exudes the ethereal.
Heather's work is sometimes low relief, combined painted surfaces with glass layers, or it can be an arrangement of multiple free form glass elements. Painting, sandblasting, slumping and fusing are some of the techniques she utilizes in her response to the transparency and fluidity of the glass.
