Plume Bottles


Previously Laura Quinn has explored mixing her two favourite processes: lampworking and glassblowing with soft materials to make interactive sculptures. However, the Plume Bottles are a new, exciting exploration that combine the processes using epoxy resin. The resulting form showcases the playful combination as the lampworked glass feathers appear to swoop up the blown form, giving a sense of movement. 


Materials: blown and lampworked glass, resin, cold assembled.
