ROCKY SCULPTURES BY DEBORAH TIMPERELY

My rocky sculptures explore the beauty of stone bridges, harbour walls, dry stone walling and rocky outcrops.

The compositions are evocative of the landscape and they suggest rocks and stones placed harmoniously together, contrasting defined edges with the softness of adjacent vegetation. The blocks of colour echo the surrounding landscape, water and sky. They have a sense of place and atmosphere.

The sculptures are constructed by hand using chunks of glass to create a natural form.

The pieces are fired in the kiln over several days. Opening the kiln and discovering how the heat has worked with the glass within the mould to provide a unique piece is one of the joys of the material.

Harbour Wall in Sunlight

Harbour wall is a free standing glass sculpture in beautiful blues and aqua, oranges and red. It’s inspired by a stone built harbour wall on a sunny day, blue skies reflected in the water, red boat hulls glinting in the sun

My rocky sculptures are constructed by hand using chunks of American Bullseye Glass to create natural forms.

Each composition is different, it’s only when it’s taken out of the kiln after a 6 day firing that I can see the result and tell if I’ve captured the essence of my inspiration.
