Line and Form
Macro detail of small Studio Glass perfume bottle by British Glass Artist Catherine Hough showing lined and textured front surface and internal reflections. The inspiration for this design is based on lines of quartz seen in pebbles. The precision of such lines and surface textures became the 'hallmark' of her work in the early 1980's while working at the Glasshouse in London and her small bottles, in a variety of shapes and designs were very popular. This piece was made for an exhibition in 1983.
In 1997 she set up her own company to concentrate on larger 'one-off' and limited edition pieces. More details and images of her work can be found at www.catherinehough.com
