Description Enchanted Dawn in Short Pink, is a unique glass tree sculpture by the British artist Louis Thompson. The initial tree trunk form has been handblown in clear and ivory/alabaster coloured glass. The top has been covered in free-hand sculpted leaves, each created in various pink and purple hues, which have all been individually attached to the artwork. The resulting piece is serene, joyous and uplifting.

In the artist's own words;

"Trees exist as a free and natural life form. Rooted deep into the earth, they extract rich nutrients to grow and flourish, providing the oxygen of our life and digesting our waste. Trees reflect the conditions of our present time. This new body of work is about presence, strength, growth and transformation, our connection to nature and the cycle of change"

Accomplished glass artist Thompson explores illusion and the perceptions of glass, fascinated by the haptic experience in art and sculpture. He works with molten glass, sometimes sabotaging the material: twisting, creasing, buckling and collapsing the glass. The works have underlying themes of the human body; sensuous, tactile, echoing folds, curves and creases. With simplicity and purity of materials, he plays with the viewers’ comprehension of what is put before them, often creating collections of objects where the dialogue and relationship between each element is as essential as the collective composition.

He has exhibited extensively in the UK, Europe, USA and Japan. In 2012 Thompson received two prestigious awards in the UK: British Glass Biennale Winner and the Jerwood Foundation Makers Commission. He has been invited to create installations for various museums and international exhibitions and his work is held in permanent museum collections in Belgium, Germany, Japan, Czech Republic and the V&A Museum in London. Thompson has completed International residencies at the prestigious Museum of Glass in Tacoma, The Glazenhuis Museum in Belgium and most recently at Soneva Art Glass in the Maldives.
