Contemporary Glass Art ‘Echoes of Light’ by Tim Rawlinson
Tim Rawlinson creates a wonderful architecture of light with this contemporary glass art.
Precision cut and polished edges combine with delicious curves in this fantastic piece. This stunning contemporary glass art form contains a kaleidoscope of blue, purple and pink layered glass. Therefore, this piece creates a dazzling optical effect.
The transparent qualities of the coloured glass are fully exploited to reflect the light. This colourful and vibrant glass sculpture is certainly a ‘wow’ worthy piece and demands pride of place.
Tim Rawlinson hand blows every piece. Each one is completely unique and signed by the artist.
