Glass Pot ‘Veldfire’ by Kalki Mansel
Fiery orange glass pot with subtle black wisps from the hugely talented glass studio artist Kalki Mansel.
Lava-like good looks with this sun coloured piece of art. The blend of red into yellow and every shade of colour in between makes this fiery piece all the more captivating as the glass looks like the surface of the sun or fast flowing lava. A wonderfully bright, strong piece of art glass.
Choose from either the Round or Tall glass pot.
Glass Pot Artist
Kalki’s relationship with glass started at the tender age of 13 when he came across a glass art studio in Northern Ireland. Moving from the South with his family, he would spend as much time as possible hanging out at the Glass Studio he had stumbled across. Kalki finished his secondary school education, spending as much as possible of his spare time at the studio. America was his destination on completing school, and here he would learn more about his passion by visiting several studios and getting to know their individual artists.
On return from America, Kalki enrolled at Sunderland University to study for a BA honours degree in Glass, Architectural Glass, and Ceramics. His passion for glass had become intensified during his time in America, and in 2007 he graduated from Sunderland. 2008 took Kalki to Australia, and on his return, he was to start working for the Jane Charles Studio of Glass in Sunderland as well as the National Glass Centre.
Today, Kalki continues to work in Sunderland, for both studios, and as a glass blower and practising glass artist. Kalki’s works are inspired by many fields including science, the natural world, colour, and culture. Molten glass is the perfect material for expressing and capturing his inspirations, Kalki loving to share his fascination with glass with others through his works. Each glass pot will be handmade by Kalki and signed.
