You might find yourself wondering what kind of insect wove such divinely intricate webs. However, these splendidly spun creations fell from the fingertips of Kira Phoenix K’inan - a young London-based artist. K’inan graduated from The Royal college of Art with a degree in Glass and Ceramics.
Inspired by painters such as Kurt Schwitters and Umberto Boccioni, she has developed her own unique style of low relief drawing that treads the line between sculpture and sketch. By carving directly into plaster sheets, K’inan has the rare ability to cast her artwork using very fine ground glass – rendering work that is, essentially, painting with glass.
