Carol Fréve’s work is distinguished by an original combination of blown and slumped glass together with electroformed and knitted copper. A clear, smooth piece of blown glass represents, for her, simply a starting point of raw material.

By kiln casting that piece in a plaster mold, I extract buried secrets from its flesh, until a story appears where earlier, there was only transparency. The unpredictable results of this superimposition of techniques creates the impression that the object itself upon disclosing it own complexity, determined its final form. The intimacy of the piece is thus revealed.

This transformation can also be seen as a symbol for the passage of time, when memories become indistinct and reality is distorted. Incorporating hazard, lost and many subtle choices, my process suggest human and spiritual development.
