Handmade Glass Art ‘Orange and Pink Otty’ by Katherine Huskie
The Orange and Pink Otty handmade glass art by Katherine Huskie is bright and bold, using a perfect combination of rich shades of pink and orange. The Otty stands at 15cm tall, and each sculpture is entirely unique. Her inspiration being taken from textiles and geometric designs, you will spend many hours staring into the Otty trying to count the number of layers and dots. The incredible kaleidoscope of the Otty is enhanced further when the sculpture is placed in direct sunlight, the sculpture being the perfect centrepiece to brighten up even the dullest of days.
The orange and pink Otty by Katherine glows with rich colour, the multitude of spots taking on diverse shapes and forms depending on the angle of your view. Choose bright and orange for the colour of your Otty for modern and retro décor homes. The perfect handmade glass art centrepiece, the Orange and Pink Otty will be the talk of all visitors to your home.

Katherine takes her inspiration for her glass sculptures from geometric patterns and textile designs, each layer of the Otty containing perfectly geometrical dots or rings. The grey and white Otty casts a different shadow depending on your line of view, the Otty coming to life when sat in sunlight. Lose hours staring into the Otty, counting the dots of each layer, gazing into a pattern that is simplistic yet stunning and entirely unique.
