Sahara Flat Glass Vessel by Randi Solin
13 x 10 x 4 in
A Solinglass original created by master glassblower Randi Solin, known in the world of contemporary art glass for her unique style and coloration process. Her approach to the series of Flat Vessels is more like that of a painter than a glassblower. Atypical to a more traditional approach to blown glass, the idea behind these pieces was to create a simple form that allowed a 'canvas' for her complex and multi-layered glass compositions. Hand-shaped free blown glass off the pipe with a multi-layering coloration built from glass rod, earthtone powders and frit, black cane and gold ruby frit, and multiple sheets of sterling silver leaf. The coloration is finished with a band composed of seven glass powders producing "brush stroke" striations. Cut and polished top.
