I see things as they really are, but through a kind of glory by Tennyson, engraved on a clear cylinder vase.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Peter Furlonger is a glass engraver, calligrapher and stone carver.

“While working in various media- glass, stone, paper et al., I have focused mainly on glass as a medium for the expression of my interest in letter form. By working on 3D surfaces I have been able to realise the intrinsic beauty of abstract calligraphy; by working on transparent surfaces I have discovered the excitement of overlay patterns, fragmenting as they interact in space, through the dynamic of 3D form. In using opaque overlay glass a more colouristic and tactile medium has evolved, making possible the use of solid structures of multiple overlaid letter-surfaces, differentiated by colour contrast, resulting in designs of a more intricate complexity, and greater sculptural presence.

I design the glass from its inception through to completion, which involves a process of making [hot and cold process], and a process of engraving [mask- cutting and sandblasting]. There is a great deal of control and planning involved and I am able to specify every detail;- and then the glass takes over!  The end result is therefore very much a collaboration between glass-maker,  myself and the glass. In the end, the glass has the last ‘say’-that is the magic of glass!” - Peter Furlonger
