Since 2014, Anna has been developing a new mold-less pate de verre technique, which greatly expands the ways in which she can form glass. Anna creates moldable pastes and flexible sheets out of glass powders, and these new materials allow her to create complex forms and structures not possible before.
“My work takes many different forms, as my investigation continuously refocuses on different nuances of the same area of investigation. I use investigative, experiment-driven processes, to reveal transitory points between two positions. Thoughts transmute into objects in literal space and time, and these objects reiterate the impermanent and mutable.”
These objects express the changing landscape of emotions within a relationship over time. They all resemble abstracted boat and/or house shapes as a further analogy towards co-inhabited spaces and vessels in which we come together and make new discoveries.
