Designed by Vicky Higginson for the Isobel Wylie Hutchison Collection, Carlowrie Castle
Glass is the ideal medium for exploring the juxtaposition of strength and fragility, the first quality attributed to Isobel as an explorer and the second attributed to women as a whole in the period.
Each glass is expertly mouth-blown and etched by hand; no two are totally the same.
Geometric forms and patterns draw on Art Deco designs from the period and the textiles of Inuit peoples.
Engraving, carving and mark making on the glass surface represent abstracted maps, landscape forms and details taken from Isobel’s writing and documentaries.
Materials: Hand blown and engraved glass.
Care: Hand wash in warm water, avoiding extreme changes in temperature.
