Ursula Halpin

My work explores metaphors that describe my identity and connections to place through reconnecting with the landscape of my country of birth. I am concerned with finding the meaning in absence and presence through developing an authentic connections to place.

Through exploring materiality and pushing the glass outside its traditional use in vessels I explore the limitations and possibilities of the material. My current research topics deal with notions of identity and duality, psychological fragility and connections to place.
