Amanda Heath – Fossil Glass Sculptures
The process of Amanda’s art work is just as fascinating as the results. Each of her collection showcases a particular technique. Her famous Ichthyosaur sculpture, from her Cast Range, is made out of copper and glass mounted on scorched green oak block. Sculptures from the Forma Range are handmade in solid glass. The TubeLight sculptures are made by pouring molten glass into copper tubes and then mounted on an oak or slate plinth and illuminated from below with an LED light.
Indirectly, Amanda Heath gives honor to Mary Anning, a woman who was not scientifically honored during her life time in early 19th century Britain, due to her gender and belonging to the working class.
