Stephen Bradbourne’s ‘Thread Study’ series sits alongside an exploration of Murrine techniques. ‘Cane’ and ‘twisted cane’ techniques in his work achieve complex linear patterning. Informed by an interest in handcrafts, fabric and weaving techniques became starting points to inform these pieces. During the 30 years Stephen has been creating glass objects, the process of murrine and cane working has become an influence in itself.
The ‘Thread Study’ series attempts to create complex patterns and intensify that complex patterns as much as possible.
