OPTIC MOULD

The influence for this sculpture originates from Dartington Crystal's production methods that can be seen first hand within the factory. Taking the key structural elements of an optic mould, I created a conceptual response to the history of the company.

The circular formation shows resemblance to a clock, demonstrating the analogy of time that has passed since they established in 1967.

Each side of the dividers signifies a year of making, allowing the viewer to travel through Dartington Crystal's time span until reaching the single glass panel; a recognition of the 50th anniversary.
