Sahara Emperor Bowl by Randi Solin
Approaching glass like a painter to canvas, the artist imbues this vessel with dazzling coloration. Bright apricot and brilliant gold powdered glass and frits were carefully layered during the blowing process, with a dusting of Italian silver foil. The coloration is finished with a band composed of seven glass powders producing “brush stroke” striations. The lip of the vessel is cut and polished to a shine, revealing its interior layers.
A Solinglass original created by Randi 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.
