Nicole Ayliffe
logra con el vidrio soplado en caliente formas como las lentes ópticas para ver a través de ellas una imagen fotográfica de un paisaje. Las fotografías se insertan en un medio de gel y luego se adhirieron a la superficie del vidrio.

Nicole Ayliffe

Her work is represented in the National Glass Collection, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, Australia,the College of Fine Arts, Northeast University, Changchun , China and the Ernsting Stiftung Glasmuseum, Coesfeld, Germany.

In her "optical landscape" series the artist explores the ideas of optics and space. The hot blown glass forms act as an optical lens through which to view a photographic image of a landscape. The photographs are embedded in a gel medium and then adhered to the surface of the glass.
