LIAM REEVES Working exclusively with blown glass, my interest is in the contemporary translation of techniques from an historic tradition. The work is an ongoing investigation into the relationship between surface and form. I use the liquid dynamics of the molten glass to produce organic, free-flowing shapes and then apply decorative techniques to describe their three-dimensional nature. This results in forms and patterns evoking the spiral geometry of the Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Series - mathematical sequences found throughout nature, from the growth of leaves and seed heads in plant life to human DNA itself. I believe that geometric pattern and mathematics can provide interesting connections between the actual and virtual worlds.
