Opal Kernel

Art Glass Vase

Created by James Friedberg
This white and clear vessel was created using cane, or filigrana, a traditional Venetian technique used to apply specific line patterns to the glass. The cane has been treated in such a way that it creates overlapping lines with a central focal point. The central focal point of the overlapping white lines of the cane creates a web pattern reminiscent of a vortex.

The pattern on this vessel is part of a series that is inspired by natural phenomena (light, time, growth) and the scientific charts and graphs explaining these phenomena. This series is an exploration of light, color, line, and form through glass vessels.

This vessel has a shape similar to that of a seed or a kernel. The clear accent on the sides of the piece allow for the pattern to appear as if it is floating in air.
