it may be sunny outside today, but we are still in the throes of winter here and i still need my shots of color. i will take them with gusto from the inspired glass work of uk artist bob crooks. bob is an internationally exhibited artist who has a studio in devon, and his one of a kind collection is made entirely by hand. bob is inspired by the material itself, in addition to architecture, nature and geometry. drilling deeper into those ideas he has made a success putting together soft curves and crisp angles with cloudy and clear surfaces. he has created a collection that compels us to discover the details.
this work makes me feel good, looking at the colors. this work makes me feel inspired, to see someone who so clearly, masterfully, effortlessly seems to integrate his talents and skills. we should all be so lucky to do that. we should all be so lucky.
see more beauty on bob’s website. when visiting the victoria and albert museum, be sure to look for his work there in the permanent collection. you might also be able to spot select pieces at cecilia colman, tracey macnee and the steam gallery at beer.
