Art Glass Vessel(ID: A89741)
Created by Eric BladholmOne of a Kind
Large hand blown glass 'graal' (a Swedish carved imagery glass technique) sculptural Branch Vessel with hand sculpted glass branch lid. Inspired by early 20th century European and Eastern European expressionist woodcut prints, this unique series incorporates old-world textures and patterns into a contemporary art glass piece with a hand sculpted glass lid. With bold graphics and stark monotone matte etched finish, this one-of-a-kind piece features imagery from photos and drawings by the artist transcribed to a three dimensional glass storybook. The line drawings are painstakingly etched into the glass surface, using stencils and sandblasting, see photo showing the different steps. The carved glass cylinder is then reheated to molten temperatures and blown into the final form, allowing the heat and blowing process to expand and distort the carved images. The fitted glass stopper has a matching black and white center sphere surrounded by matte black glass branch and leaf details. Meticulous detail and inspired design are the basis of this signature series by the artist. Photos shown are actual artwork for sale in this listing which is a one of a kind creation hand crafted by the artist personally (be sure to see additional images).
