rydym i gyd yn fregus / we are all fragileChris Bird-Jones

04 April - 06 June 2020

Chris Bird-Jones has produced a series of spoon-like forms, both symbolic and sensuous. Handling these pieces requires gentle care; it needs to be considered and secure; pieces can be cradled in one’s arms, like a newborn child - one slip and all would be lost, shattered, mirroring the human condition, a life in balance. 

The fragility of glass, as a manmade material, reflects the ideas behind the work. There is a playful passion for light and movement, combined with the myriad magical qualities inherent in all forms of glass. Showing these pieces alongside moving images adds layers of reference and appeal; you may recognise traces of stories in this new body of work.
