Ian Chadwick is an internationally recognized Kiln-formed glass artist. Winner of the Worshipful Company Of Glass Sellers Award at the British Glass Bienale 2019. Ian has an interest in geometry and in particular in the history and philosophy behind the geometric symbols known as mandalas. This interest is realized in Ian’s glass work where the ritualized process of making is employed to bring the essence of mandalas into the symmetrical glass patterns which have become his unique signature aesthetic. As Ian has progressed his work he has continued to investigate different pattern forming techniques and new ways to engage with the viewer. The patterns have evolved and become multi layered and less ordered. The most current range of Ian’s work is designed to represent a map of the mind in its chaotic juxtapositioning of lines of thought.
