Via @L_D_F, glass art inspired by the home of artist William Morris, Kelmscott Manor. "The work, which considers the influence of the house and its gardens, marks the 150th anniversary of Morris & Co, his interior design company founded in 1861."

"Perhaps no Englishman, apart from the owners of truly ancestral homes,
had ever felt such passionate attachment to a building"

- Fiona MacCarthy, William Morris, A Life of Our Time

Drawing Near The Light will be on display at the CAA gallery during the London Design Festival, "Her series of sculptural glass pieces contrasts the simplicity of the architectural interior with the rich organic tapestry of plants growing outside. With a colour palette which evokes the contrasting forms and tones of light and shade within the house and its grounds, the work individually and collectively evokes the spirit of Kelmscott Manor in an experiential fashion."
