Maria Parsons

Maria Parsons. Project title: Pour L’Amour des Lunettes.’ Statement: ‘My work has its origins in my love of eyeware. The shapes and reflective qualities of the pieces are directly influenced by glasses. I have endeavoured to draw on this influence in a playful way using articulation, capturing colourful shapes between clear acrylic. Other pieces contain magnification, a gentle nod to their origin. The work is mainly layered coloured acrylic, which is worked to give a ‘Bakelite’ quality, softening the edges and giving it a smooth finish. Silver and brass are used to join and finish the work.’
