Using space and light have been the driving forces in my work. The main medium I work with is glass as it is the prime material for capturing light, as well as photographic work, collages and drawings.
I use mainly kiln based glass techniques such as glass casting, pate de verre, fusing, slumping and enamelling. Glass is a very versatile medium with endless possibilities. I also work with other materials to complement the glass, such as stone, concrete, steel and timber.
Inspiration for my work is drawn from several sources (visual and literarily) but a general theme is life’s rich tapestry and universal mythology providing me with strong concepts and images. I also wrote an extensive research document “Grasping the Intangible; light enlightened” when completing my Masters studies in 1997.
Studio visits are welcome.
The majority of work is made to commission and site-specific. The process of commissioning involves a dialogue between the site, the client and Inge which is a stimulating and thought provoking exercise.
Inge’s strength is providing an all-encompassing package; from initial design ideas, through sketch proposals and actual manufacturing. Design proposals are worked up following discussions with the client when past projects and samples are shown. Sketches, drawings and samples always precede the actual piece and are an important part of the dialogue. A design is chosen which is worked up to full scale.
Upon agreement of design a 50% of the total is to be paid prior to any work being started.
