About Cut Branch Black No 1 & 2

A celebrated glass artist with more than 30 years experience, Rock’s work takes the art of shaping hot glass to a new creative level. This table top piece of tree branches were inspired by nature’s beautiful form and colours. Two of a series.

“The materiality of glass and in particular the optical and perceptual conditions that can be found through transparency is central to my practice.” Tyler Rock
