Broneirion Glass

ArchitecturePhotographyFine Arts
In June and July 2015 I was one of the National Theatre Wales' NTW Summercamp artists in residence.  This gave me the opportunity to work with, and learn from, a variety of other artists including actors, dancers, writers, directors, choreographers, video/sound artists and poets from Wales, London, Australia, and South Korea.
We spent two weeks together working, watching, learning and sharing, 24 hours a day, having taken over Broneirion House in Llandinam, Powys, Mid-Wales.
Many of the artworks/performances that were created during the residency were inspired by the history of the house.  One of the things that caught my eye during my time there was the additions and amendments to the building that must have happened bit by bit over the years since it was originally built.  The time differences in these amendments were made obvious by the variety in the patterns, thicknesses and textures of glass that had been used throughout the house.  As my time on the residency neared its end and I was sure that I had explored every part of the labyrinthine complex, I decided to document all the different glass that was in use.
My project consists of photographs of the eighteen different types of obscure glass that were in use in Broneirion on 1st July 2015.
