Sean O'Neill

I derive my inspiration from the landscape, the weather and patterns in nature. Seeing forms emerge through the incessant repetition of natural phenomena, I am often reminded that it has been slow and deliberate processes that have shaped our world. I have sought to communicate the feeling of those ancient forces by incising my own patterns into the glass surface. By utilizing the vessel as my canvas, I use stone and diamond wheels to carve my compositions into the glass. These marks reference processes carried out in nature and result in random order. The making of the marks is also a slow and rhythmic process and through these actions the patterns emerge. While each pattern is intentional, the process often reveals subtle variations to respond to, making each piece unique. In the current age where change occurs at such a rapid pace, I create these works as contemplations on the less fleeting forces that shape our world.
