“Iridescent” new works by Andrew Irvine
Andrew Irvine is a ceramic artist and chemist who is inspired by the science behind ceramic materials and processing. In “Iridescent” he showcases his new experimental work with silver and bismuth lustre glazes using a raku fuming process. The refractive and reflective quality of lustre glaze colors result from a nano-layer of metallic crystals formed in the glaze surface during the fuming process, resulting in vibrant, elusive, otherworldly colors that burst to life when viewed in different light sources. These “glaze paintings” are truly emblematic of the modern evolution of ceramic art crossing over into the world of chemistry and material science.
