Liz O'Connell Glass
I am a contemporary craft maker and glass artist exploring textile narratives primarily through glass. Having both Irish and Yorkshire heritage I have been fascinated by textiles and threads, both my parents worked in textile mills on arriving to England. I am exploring the fabric of who we are, I create objects and textiles to explore 'work' and the psychological space taken by mending and fixing. 'Threadbare', 'a stitch in time' and 'losing the thread' are analogies for the hidden and the invisible work of caring sorting and curating environments. I use the techniques of fusing, glassblowing and lamp work.
I am currently developing work with Bursary13 through Curator Space.
