Kathleen McAvoy

Three Dimensional Design
BA (Hons)

I am a designer maker specializing in hot glass. Blown by mouth and shape the form by hand enables me to explore a rage of forms.

My main body of work is based on the forms of the humming bird. The graal technique, an advanced glassmaking process, helped me to achieve details in my glass pieces that are found in the brightly coloured feather patterns of the birds.

With the glass Horns my inspiration was from Tatton Park were all the animals heads are on display.

I started to think about the animals fighting and interlocking horns, also about the fact that people will hunt animals for their horns to display, like in the room in Tatton.
