Jo Tricker: Glass Art Gallery

This is a small selection from some of Jo's series - more are available from Jo's stockists or direct from the studio. All art works are made using the essential elements of heat and gravity.

Woven in Light

Bowls, Platters and plates

The 'Woven in Light' series is inspired by my grandmother's weaving.  I grew up in Auckland and my granny lived on Frederick Street in Hillsborough - a street which runs along the cliff above Hillsborough Bay (funnily enough, the next bay around is called "grannys Bay").  My gran had a very large floor loom that she made blankets, throws, wall hangings, table mats and all sorts on - and I have very fond memories of watching her feet on the pedals and the weft and warp dancing with the shuttle - the end result being evenly woven works of art!  As a little girl i thought it was all pretty magical!   Her loom was based in a large shed in her garden - which was also a work of art with pathways that wound their way down towards the cliff.  All of my extended family have items woven by Gran and they are very treasured pieces.

After the Storm

These vases were made in response to the storm that occurred on January 4th 2018, which flooded my business with 30 cm of salt water - causing damage both mentally and physically.

Some inspiration came from this copper sheet corroded by salt
