Works in Steel and Glass inspired by the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge
Art in enamels : Inspired by The Applied Arts Galleries at The Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge UK.
In 2013 and 2014 glass artist Mel Howse was the guest of The Applied Arts Department of The Fitzwilliam Museum UK, studying historic collections of ceramics, glass, metal. Decorative and functional. Pieces are from the Iraq, Iran, Korea, UK and China.
Her research has become the source of a very unusual and original hand made set of artworks, as she takes her ideas from exhibits in ceramics, glass and metal, and creates an artistic response from contemporary industrial materials using spun steel and industrial vitreous enamel.
The pieces range in size from 65cm to 1.2m in diameter
