I have a ‘lost chord’ blue – the blue of late summer nights around midnight. I have been trying to find it in blue glass for years.
The search for the elusive blue became bound up with a fascination with how the glass reflected the light and cast beautiful blue shadows. Marc Chagall’s blue stained glass at Reims cathedral was a revelation.
The glass itself is sexy – texture, the odd bubble.
But most of all I love how it bends and twists the light.
I’m not quite sure where this is going yet, but now we have the light evenings I am determined to explore my blue world, perhaps starting with shadows.
