“Working with glass is like alchemy, a seemingly magical process of transformation. Although glass making has a long history, it is still a relatively new material when you consider its use in the arts and I continue to be fully excited about the potential it has now and for the future.- Matt Durran
Always looking to push boundaries within his art, he embraces new technology and experimentation to create new methods of production.
His latest body of work - Seeing The Unseen investigates the construction and imagery of nano glass. Developed for industry, nano glass’s microstructural design and strength is used in a variety of areas, from the coating on lenses to medical applications.
