Art Glass Vessel
Created by Joshua Solomon
This hand blown vase comes alive with a unique combination of amethyst and light cobalt. Inclusions of hand hammered Japanese silver foil add boldness to the organic form. The two colors are gently folded together during the initial phase of the glassblowing process. Once the piece has cooled to room temperature, extensive carving with a diamond wheel creates lines and texture on the surface. A final etching with a sandblaster results in a soft and luminous satin finish. The transparency of the two colors combined with the opacity of silver foil create an elegant and dynamic statement.
