My apologies for uploading the original file that was unfinished. When Hannah and I recorded I didn't realize the audio levels for my mic were turned down so low. It was quite the challenge to fix the issue and I'm still not 100% satisfied. However I felt the quality of the conversation was too good to redo so I hope you can bare with me and get through the entirety of the episode. Thank you for listening.
This episode features the talented Hannah Gibson who is a glass artist based out of the UK
BIO: Whilst studying Geology at the University of Edinburgh Hannah became fascinated by the mineralogy and the reactions between various elements, metals and compounds. This led her towards a passion for the alchemy of glass.
Capturing the nostalgic imagery of childhood, exposing hidden narratives, through cast sculptural glass stands at the core of Hannah's work.
Passionate about sustainability and recycling, using only 100% recycled glass, and found objects. Sweet Nothings are a series of individual, unique Cast Glass figures. Usually found in pairs, whispering ‘Sweet Nothings’ to one another.
What are they whispering?
‘Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.’ (Dr Seuss, The Lorax).
