Celestine IV

$ 3,800
  • Description
    'Celestine IV' is a unique artwork based on crystal rock formations created by the British artist, Wayne Charmer.

    Taken inspiration from the moment that a mass of rock is literally cracked open, to reveal a carpet of sparkling gems, Charmer has filled his organic form with small shards of glass. Creating these fragments by hand and grading them in different sizes, allows Charmer to build up the texture in a purposeful and harmonious way, yet keeping the appearance as if each crystal has grown there.

    In his own words:
    'I immediately became attracted to working with glass during my time at university, I was drawn to the complex and challenging process of manipulating a material from a solid form to become fluid whilst in the kiln. I aim is to capture this fluidity in the final cooling process and present an organic characteristic to my work . The glass undergoes many transformations whilst firing and the not knowing aspect during this change is the attraction. Over the years I have developed a clearer understanding of the material yet I strive to develop new ways of working to explore and exploit the qualities of glass and this always presents new obstacles to over come which retain my initial fascination in working with this medium.’
