Lacy Petal Spiral

Art Glass & Bamboo Sculpture

Created by Charissa Brock
Lacy Petal Spiral is made from tiger bamboo, or phyllostachys nigra bory, a beautiful spotted bamboo. Traditionally prepared strips are heat bent and then stitched together to create a spiraling shell-like shape. A webbing of waxed linen thread and fused glass petals decorate the surface. The stand is made from natural bamboo laminate. This comes from a series of spirals. Each spiral has the same underlying form, but the details within each spiral are different.
