Mary McCarten : Stratum : Contemporary Glass Exhibition at Ripley Arts Centre Bromley

25th November to 22nd December 2008
Open evening 27th November 7-9pm

Mary is a glass artist producing unique, contemporary kiln formed glass. Each piece is individually handmade, using a variety of layering and fusing techniques. The work in this exhibition explores elements of the landscape.

The focus of Mary’s work is colour and texture. She works predominantly with transparent glass, often combined with luxurious gold and iridescent finishes and sections of opaque glass to create unique wall panels and hangings.

Mary is particularly interested in the ideas of concealment and revelation as expressed by layering and fragmentation and the use of opposing materials. Her inspiration comes from the environment, natural and man-made. In her work she enjoys focusing on details, such as pebbles in a stream, ice on a pond or sections of a rock face.
