Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This image is part of a series of abstract drawings created using graphite charcoal and paper. This series is about discovering the essence of discarded materials. This image has been created from glass rocks that form as part of the industrial process of glass making in St Helen's in the North West of England. The area is known for its glass industry, but this is declining and having to change and adapt to survive. The glass builds up over time and becomes its own creation, but it is ignored, thrown away and not seen as a product in its own right. However, it has a beauty that is very unique to itself, jewel like and yet it has sharp edges. Just like the process of creating glass.
