Translations in Symmetry and Surface : Jo Bone and Aaron Micallef
Glass artists Jo Bone and Aaron Micallef have a shared passion for the medium of glass, and complementary aesthetic approaches revolving around pattern, symmetry and intricacy in the natural world. Their glass artwork is crafted using traditional hot-glass (blowing) and cold-working techniques (cutting, engraving, etching) to create form and surface. Jo's fascination for pattern and intricacy in natural objects, particularly in the marine environment, finds expression through her glass practice. Aaron complements his glass practice with photography, reinterpreting glass through the camera lens and capturing the subtleties of the diffusion, diffraction, reflection and refraction of light through blown and cut glass.
