Glass provides an opportunity to experience light, to diffuse it, to distort and reflect and even to contain it.
'Experimenting with neon and plasma has given me the opportunity to experiment with distorted filaments of light. Exploiting the cascading interaction of electricity with the inert neon, transforms the invisible to a vibrant and searing red'.
In the suspended piece ‘filament’ the strands of neon cascade through the centre of an assemblage of strands of manipulated scientific glass. These looping threads provide a disruption to the vibrant neon red, lending and borrowing light. Each gossamer strand affects the next, interlacing and disrupting the tendrils of light. This lends itself to a meandering experience of the energetic interior.
Other works include Harriet's glass heart forms, 'dissipate', suspended clear glass bubbles, and 'indelible', wood panels that are marked with molten glass. 'I have been reflecting on the moments that mark and change us. Considering the effects that others have on us. Of how an experience becomes embodied, and the importance of generous and poignant teachers'.
Harriet was awarded the Asia Link residency last year (2018) between the Canberra Glassworks and Toyama Glass Studio.
In 2019 she was awarded the Stephen Procter Fellowship through the ANU,
