Into The Forest - a series of drawings made with fused glass powder.

Into the Forest was inspired by recently reading Sarah Maitland's book Gossip from the Forest: a search for the hidden roots of our fairytales and seeing some friends' production of Stephen Sondheim's musical Into the Woods.

The drawings explore the forest as a place to get lost, to hide, to have adventures.  You will notice oblique references to Grimms Brothers' stories.
