Title: Solitude Bowls
Artist: Amanda Notarianni
Profile: Amanda Notarianni designs and makes distinctive contemporary glass. Using traditional glass making techniques she creates unique hand blown sculptural forms. Amanda enhances her sleek free blown pieces using skilful cold working processes such as cutting, carving and polishing to create surface patterns and textures, which hold light and magnify reflections. Initially inspired by microscopic images of plankton, her work is now evolutionary, with each piece informing the next. “Molten glass is such a dynamic material to work with. I really enjoy the challenge of working with a material that continuously pushes me to develop skills and understanding.” Amanda’s innovative ultra modern pieces are hand made to commission with projects undertaken ranging from public art commissions, to architectural lighting and one off sculptural vessels. Amanda exhibits internationally and has pieces in both private and public collections.
