Vortex Montague Cylinder

Art Glass Vase

Created by James Friedberg
This cylindrical vessel was created using multiple traditional Venetian glass blowing techniques. Cane, or filigrana, is a traditional Venetian technique used to apply specific line patterns to glass. Friedberg has created new techniques to manipulate the cane in order to achieve new contemporary patterns which he applies to blown glass vessels. The window of overlapping white lines is complimented by painterly strokes of blue, pink, and white. 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.
