This was a fantastic opportunity to use any of the facilities and develop ideas into glass, give a talk to the students attending classes and then have conversations primarily about grief and loss, probing the ideas of the presence of absence that were being exploring visually.

17 glass paintings and prints onto glass with added engraving were created that worked with the slipper, footprint and monstrance imagery that had come out of the residency in Ireland, using screen prints and then the paper stencils to create both the presence and absence of the images.

Bild-Werk Frauenau is a regional and international forum for glass and visual arts, a stage for music and culture, and a place for border-crossing encounters, in the glassmaking village Frauenau in Bavaria, Germany.
