This multi colored, hand blown flat vase is so fun. The bright colors are balanced perfectly by the dynamic black squares of color.
The Phillip vase is part of an ongoing series inspired by the interaction of nature with man made elements I was struck with after a visit to Philip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan, CT. Parts of the patterning are dominated by organic textures while other elements are ordered and grid like, in both contrast and harmony.This piece was created by fusing dozens of handmade glass tiles into a cylinder and then blowing the fused glass into it’s shape. The texture on the inside of the piece is the result of the fusing which allows passing light to bend and distort the pattern, highlighting the interior space that exists in the perception of the viewer.
