Nicole Ayliffe has captured the optical qualities of glass in this stunning new series of works inspired by the natural world. Each piece has been hand blown, meticulously surface worked, cut and polished to provide a window into the interior form. These processes emphasise the reflection and refraction of light between the exterior and interior surfaces. The solidity of the glass and the suspension of an internal bubble create the optical illusion of space, distortion and movement. Ayliffe’s work is represented in the Parliament House Art Collection and National Glass Collection in Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.
