NINA CASSON MCGARVA
Nina’s inspiration and continuing expression is drawn from nature; its cycles, dynamic forms and richly patterned structures. Seeds, leaves, bark, petals, lichen, feathers and shells trigger ideas. Her arduous working method involves opening her kiln to rapidly manipulate the hot malleable glass until the shape is ‘frozen’. The ensuing forms are alive with rich texture and movement, animated by a natural energy and vital spirit.
