'Chris Bird-Jones’ work holds things, in buckets, in bowls, in spoons. Working primarily with glass, she explores transience and light through materiality, while grounding her practice in the subject matter of the everyday. In ‘her recent monograph ‘rydym i gyd yn fregus / we are all fragile, she focuses on the spoon. Bird-Jones holds the spoon close to her body, cradles it against herself, and notices its presence. In doing this, she asks us to look at the spoon in both its sublime simplicity as a form and in the many appearances it makes in our lives.' Edit from an essay by Stevie MacKinnon-Smith.
