This kind of work demands to be held, turned, and investigated from all angles and is versatile in the ways it can be shown. Laced with intricate patterns of threaded glass cane and backed by a beautiful field of gold leaf and rich colored glass. The combination of colors and patterns creates a stunning visual.
The sheer amount of clear glass surrounding this landscape of colors and patterns unveils a landscape of optical illusions with its ability to magnify and distort. The surface of the piece has been laboriously hand ground in a series of polished lenses using a lathe and diamond abrasive wheels. The classic "glue chipping" process has been carefully crafted around the lenses to create an organic arrangement of pattern. This one of a kind piece is guaranteed to impress!
The shape of this Apex piece allows the viewer to have it sit either on it's lip, on one of the many carved lenses or on it's polished base. Both views are striking!
