I find glass magical. I’m fascinated with how glass interacts with light and how it captures the light’s living energy. It is constantly changing as the light changes around it. Much of the work I do is based on this perception of the magic of glass, and it’s interaction with light.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Gayle Temple is completely self-taught; Gayle started with tumbled glass, then coloured and stained glass, and is now experimenting with kiln fired glass.
The changing seasons influence what Gayle creates; some pieces are whimsical and bursting with shape and colour, while others are calm, clear and serene.
As Gayle continues to learn, she continues to evolve and so does her work. "I’m willing to experiment and take risks with glass; so much excitement and motivation comes from not knowing exactly what the end result will be, along with the potential of what can be created".
The possibilities are endless.
