Anne Sorensen Blue Pair --- The essence of this work is anthropomorphic. Key modes of expression that drive this piece are pairing, tonal change, light, line and balance. Using tapered cut glass enables me to have tonal changes in the core of the piece, whilst the exteriors are similar. Even though we appear to be similar, we have differences, that must be accommodated to pair. Tabloids ----- The essence of this work comes from considering the effect that modern media has on our society. The immediacy of its delivery, the frequency and its graphic nature and the impact on us.
