Recycling Narratives 
Whispering Sweet Nothings 
 
Whilst studying Geology at the University of Edinburgh Hannah became fascinated by the mineralogy and the reactions between various elements, metals and compounds. This led her towards a passion for the alchemy of glass.
Capturing the nostalgic imagery of childhood, exposing hidden narratives, through cast sculptural glass stands at the core of Hannah’s work.
Passionate about sustainability and recycling, using recycled glass, and found objects.
Sweet Nothings are a series of unique Cast Glass figures. Usually found in pairs, whispering ‘Sweet Nothings’ to one another.
What are they whispering?
‘Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.’ (Dr Seuss, The Lorax).
