Dawn Bendick is an artist and designer whose work deals with light, its effects on our internal clocks and our experience of the passage of time. Dawn’s current practice is based in kiln formed glass and specifically, she is working with cast Dichroic glass. This cast glass is embedded with metallic nanoparticles such as gold and silver that react to changes in lightwaves through a change colour. She uses sources of natural and artificial light to trigger colour changes. These pieces, which take the form of rocks and architectural remains, are meditative informants that signal what she describes as Peripheral Time Keeping: the tracking of subtle and subliminal changes that happen around us which communicate changes in time.
She has exhibited her work in the UK, Europe and the U.S. and pieces are available through:
