Drift a dramatic series of 100 unique cast quartz glass forms, exploring the notion of natural passive finishing. Harnessing the unique finishing agent of tidal water for a collection of glass objects, Drift presents a naive exploration into natural, non powered processes promoting a conversation of how we may better work symbiotically with nature. Each of the 100 series of objects are patinated and uniquely finished by the tidal drift of the Tasman Sea. Natural abrasion of the ocean water and silica celebrates the beauty and unique variation of the natural finishing process, cycling back the origins of the glass itself to its ultimate presentation.
