Theo Brooks' body of work explores the unique relationship between the handmade object and the body. Throughout the process of glassblowing, the hand does not come into direct contact with the molten glass. However, it is the human manipulation of tools and the echoes of breath that produces the glass object.
Theo believes by lathe cutting to the different pieces, the evident trace of the ghosting hand becomes more apparent. It also allows Brooks to hand manipulate the object directly, which is of high significance within his work. By cutting the glass via the lathe, Brooks addresses elements such as pattern, texture and a play on light through the movement of his own hands.
