ECA Glass 3rd Year Exhibition - March 2014, ECA Sculpture Court. Work on display by Robin Crawford, Gemma Leamy, Scott Pirie & Sophia West.

Imitate - level 3 ECA Glass

Glass has a unique ability to imitate other materials; cross-pollinating with other disciplines to refresh and recreate itself. For this project ECA glass students explored the creative possibilities of glass to imitate other materials such as ceramic, metal, wood, stone, concrete and rocks. Students selected one material as a starting point and re-presented it through form and surface in the medium of glass. This project extended the students thinking beyond the discipline. Material testing helped them to develop a unique approach to their work. As a viewer we may question the exact nature and composition of the material presented; as designers and artists we subvert the semiotics of objects. By changing the materials appearance its meaning changes to create a new visual language.

Imitate Crit - Level 3 Glass Students ECA - Glass that imitates: stone, gold, rocks and marble. Sophia a West, Robin Crawford, Scott Pirie and Charlotte Broadley.

This was an excellent exhibition were the space was site specific and the pieces became a part of the atmosphere. Well thought out and fine tuned.
