    Blueberry Icecream - Glass sculpture. Eye Candy series. In a large graceful sweep, this one of a kind sculpture measures 13 x 9 x 8 cm. 

    These works were inspired by the artist's mother with whom she made candies and chocolates. Realizing the viscosity of molten sugar is similar to molten glass, Taygan has developed the form since 2014 by pulling the glass repeatedly, as one pulls taffy candy.

    Taking inspiration from the landscapes I have traveled, I focus on textures both geological and organic. I explore these textures of the environment and abstractly translate them into glass. Glass as a material is extremely versatile and carries with it a mystery that allures the viewer as well as the maker.

    Conceptually my work is centered on phenomenology. As a child I would run my fingers over precious objects exploring the textures and surfaces. Inquisitive by nature, I hoped that tracing these alluring objects would help to reveal their mysteries. As I pass my fingertips over the surface I linger in the ephemeral moment of a connection between myself and the object.
