Within my practice I am concerned with assigning form to express interconnectivity. These floating components are derivative of biological forms.

Harriet Schwarzrock’s studio is a warehouse situated in  her backyard in Queanbeyan, NSW, Australia. She and fellow glass artist /partner Matthew Curtis, run a hot glass studio where they melt their own colour in  the furnace, blowing and casting glass and producing sculptural objects for exhibitions and commissions.

The scribed series is one of many evolutions within the narrative of her work.

“This work is concerned with scribing words to trace and loosely render their meaning through fluid compositions. These objects present a simple contemplation of stilled movement, communicating and presenting breath, rendered in blown glass forms. I wish to continue to explore this interplay within the fluid structure of this material. To present work which illustrates both a sense of aesthetic balance whilst addressing cycles of fluidity and connection.”

Harriet has exhibited extensively throughout Australia and the USA. Her work is widely collected and her piece ‘Breathe’ won the sculpture prize in the 2014 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize. She was the Art Group Creative Fellow for 2017. This fellowship has enabled her to work in a studio at the Canberra Glassworks on her major installation works involving blown glass and neon lighting which currently occupies most of the Canberra Glassworks gallery.
