The exhibition has ended but as you can see we all took our art into new areas and had fun with it.

The eye is the window into the soul, but it also is how we look out at the world.

The eye is the window into the soul, but it also is how we look out at the world. So I decided to use the eye to represent some of the ways women do this: the extroverted, the introverted, beginning a somewhat scarey opportunity, and contemplating the opposite sex. They were shown in the recent Womens Business exhibition.

Two different techniques have been used in these pieces. They are all 4-layer fused glass panels(200 x 150 mm), but the eye and eyelid are created with application upon application of glass powders on 3 of the glass sheets, giving a softer, more dimensional effect than the figures, which are painted on one of the layers with onglaze.

Outward” was inspired by the eye of a lively young female Parks Victoria ranger.
Inward was inspired by a magazine article and a photo of a woman who had experienced multiple family tragedies.
Onward was inspired by the eye of a woman who came to Melbourne from Asia as a teenager.
Other, somewhat the odd bod in the series and actually the first, was inspired by the eye of a very good-looking tour guide of Irish-Aboriginal ancestry in the Kimberley.
