Curator Julie Ewington describes this necklace, first made in 2016, as exemplifying the confidence and innovation of Blanche's recent work. She describes it as "not only building on her previous repertoire of techniques, but also letting go of some older working methods and finding new ones to reveal the distinctive characteristics of glass: its clarity, its ephemeral perfection."
Edition of 10, stamped by the artist. Kilnformed and flameworked borosilicate glass, titanium.
26cm diameter x hangs to 28cm
