Herring Emperor Bowl by Randi Solin
7 x 7 x 7 in
This hand blown art glass vase is hand shaped on a blow pipe, featuring colors from a gull and the herrings swimming below. To achieve this effect, the artist applied ten different colors one teaspoon at a time over white and clear glasses. The piece was finished with a final pickup of red-orange cane. After cooling, the top was cut and polished to a shine.
A Solinglass original created by Randi F. Solin, known in the world of contemporary art glass for her unique style and coloration process. The idea behind Randi Solin’s Emperor Bowl series is based on an ancient pottery form, designed to hold one flower. Asian-influenced forms lend themselves well to her coloration style, and the Emperor Bowl lends itself particularly well to the magnification of her optics, which is an important component of Randi Solin’s work.
