Webster uses the vessel to evoke the emotion of vast dramatic landscapes whilst honing in on the micro landscape which makes up the overall feel of that environment. When outdoors he will record small details from stone, moss, coral, wood and use these as a reference when creating textures in his glass work. The organic movement of the hot glass process contrasts with the clean sharp lines achieved in the cold working process. Webster works with hot glass and applies layers of colour from a mixture of rods, frits and powders. When cold working he may alter the shape of the piece and carve into the surface of his vessels creating windows into the work as well as texture and contrast for the interplay of light. After the cold working process some pieces are heated up once more and fire polished to enhance and highlight the carved details. This Antarctic work is impressive, unique and collectable.
