From the Artists:
Bringing together a glassmith and a draughtspuppet will invariably result in eccentricity. Puppets accustomed to holding tools in their stiff fingers are upgraded with an organic extension — articulated — that conducts ink beautifully and has rendered moot the need for hands. Although puppets’ clumsiness is charming, the cobalt glass suffuses the project with sensitivity, curiosity and technique.
This collaboration has enabled the glass and puppets to draw.
