Artist Statement

Decoration and ornament have long been disregarded and seen as superfluous to function. Downgraded from a definition of luxury, ornament is often treated with suspicion, its intention to deceive. Adverse to this view, ornament is also a strong and effective conveyor of history, tradition, and culture.

It is by bringing contemporary style to the traditions of glassblowing that Sarah Wiberley introduces a fresh approach to ornament with her hand-made glass vessels.
