Coventry Cathedral
The new seen through the old. 

During the 1940’s Coventry Cathedral was destroyed by fire bombs, the new cathedral was built next to it and completed in 1962. 
While stood inside the ruins of the old cathedral I liked that when looking through the blown out windows the glass of the new cathedral filled the emptiness, bring the old and the new together. They became connected.

I want to use this idea to connect the glass objects i bought while in Coventry with the area.

Bath Glass object booklet/poster

Using the pattern created by the glass vase, I wanted to create a booklet/poster to in some ways advertise Bath yet advertising the glass object from the charity shop – connecting them both. 

This will take form as a A2 double sided poster that folds down to make an A4 booklet.

Using the repeated pattern of the columns I wanted to created a double sided contertina folded book, made to the width of the glass object.

By using the blue glass vase found in a charity shop in Bath, I was able to create these repeated structural patterns. I feel they share similarities with the architecture seen within Bath. 
Both the Royal Crescent and The Roman Baths show the use of columns as part of their architecture. 
I want the glass object to become the link between the viewer and Bath, allowing them to connect the shape/structures seen with the city.

Bath glass found objects

While in Bath I found the architecture and structure of the buildings and landscapes most interesting and I felt these should be reflected in the glass objects I found while there. 
The shapes of the roads such as the Circus and the Royal Crescent are very well know and I wanted to see whether adding the objects found in bath the viewers familiarity with the architecture was still there.

I would now like to see how I can use the objects alone to create new landscapes and create new architectural pieces with them, taking the domestic functional actions away from them, allowing them to be seen as a new object.
