Jonathan Mossop's semi-abstract sculptures use the inherent flowing quality of molten glass to explore the way emotional states and moods are communicated through gesture. The pieces convey the dynamic essence of the human spirit, rather than presenting an exact rendering of the more static, physical form. They express feelings ranging from bliss and exhilaration to quiet contemplation.
"I have noticed that subtle changes in form or hue can inspire entirely different emotional responses," says Mossop. "I want to create work that is technically fascinating as well as emotionally evocative, giving viewers an opportunity to reflect on themselves through the experience of these pieces."
