‘CONSTRUCTIONS’ – NEW WORK BY JEFFREY SARMIENTO
Until 5th January
 2014
National Glass Centre, Sunderland, UK



‘The exhibition combines digital design, waterjet cutting, silkscreen printing, kiln forming, hand-carving and polishing to create unique ‘built’ objects from glass.
The artworks include ‘portraits’ from the Philippines to North East England, covered in tiny glass lenses; a thick glass Encylopaedia of sketches, photographs, text, and patterns; object biographies of artefacts in the Sunderland Museum; giant jigsaw puzzles representing high-rise and tower block estates. Other works include a scale model of a rope factory that spans the length of the gallery, and a reworking of a disused Norwegian greenhouse, in which the flaws in the glass are the starting point for an installation about seeking beauty in imperfection.’
