Opening Night Friday September 1st 6-8pm
Alexandra Frasersmith is an emerging glass artist. She works in lost wax cast glass, which is inspired by the fluid states of both glass and water. Originally from drought affected regional NSW, Frasersmith’s work focuses on contained water patterns and textures captured in vessel forms. The process of capturing the water textures, investing and then casting them in a kiln at 800 degrees arrests the pattern of water that once was, and freezes its likeness in glass forever. It is a memory of the natural, an attempt to capture a fluid element in a state of constant flux.
"Through the mediums of lost wax glass casting, text and works on paper, I aim to study the serendipitous movement of how water carves its path through nature, and create work that evokes a similar pool of identifiable emotion.
The method of glass Casting provides a crystal clear snapshot of a liquid state, now frozen in time, to allow for emotional reflection and introspection framed in a variety of ways. Pools, streams, ponds, lagoons, bays and seas. "
