Geoffrey Mann’s creative practice stretches the limits of his chosen medium.
“Glass is otherworldly. As a material glass embodies the materiality of time through its own state as an amorphous solid; a living material caught in a state of momentary pause.- Geoffrey Mann
Geoff embraces new technologies in the creative design process and production of his work. Mann was one of the first glass artists in the UK to introduce digital technology into his practice.
Inspired by his fascination with transposing the fleeting nature of time and motion, he creates pieces that challenge the existing divides between art, craft and design.
The Leith Pattern explores the urban myth that the standard wine bottle was originally designed and produced by Leith Glassworks in Edinburgh.
Mann interviewed a resident of Leith, to create the bottle which resonates with her memories of the past.
