Glen Barret                 

 

Taking sensuous delight in the malleable response of clay to touch and its expressive possibilities Glen first dug and modelled clay as a child at Deviot in the Tamar Valley, sixty years later and she still plays sometimes compulsively, with clay as an idea is born and explored.

 

Henry Jones Design is presently showing two small groups of her current work.

 

The very chubby burnished figures, pregnant with fullness of form, were initially a negative response to the obesity seen everywhere in our society but translated into clay, quickly turned into an obsessive delight.

 

The phantamagosmic creatures had their genesis in some leggy grapevine cuttings taken from friend’s vineyard.  They too became so vibrant with possibilities that they took over all spare time temporarily putting the rest of life on hold.
