Listening to the sound of glass

  • • Celia specialises in glass powders and pâte de verre
  • • She is interested in sound and many of her works have a soundtrack
  • • She is inspired by our relationship with the countryside

Though Celia Pascaud first became interested in craftsmanship when visiting artisan workshops at a young age, she initially became a cultural journalist. However, after several years, she felt the need to create using her hands and not only via intellectual thought, so she decided to take a course in stained glass production. After taking a workshop that covered various glassworking techniques, she decided to leave her journalism job to pursue a full-time course at the glass arts school in Lorraine, France. Her work, often inspired by topographic representations of nature, reflects her earlier passion for stained glass and her later specialisation in glass casting.

Pierre de verre, Les brutes series

This small stone-like blue piece was created by fusing together multiple glass crystals. The bright blue colour comes from the oxides with which the small glass rocks are infused.

''Parcelle'' vert de glace

The Parcelles (Plots) series encapsulates fragments of land in a magical snow globe, representing the attachment and intimate relationship we can have with a place or landscape. The piece captures a snapshot of territory while preserving the childlike wonder evoked by the snow globe.

Constellations #3

This is one of a series of contemplative pieces that reveal unfamiliar aspects of glass – matt and mineral – created using glass rocks inlaid with oxides. The delicate lacy edges of the “parcelles” (“plots”) are punctured by bright brass spheres to form a golden constellation.
