Handmade Glass Sculpture ‘Black and White Otty’
The black and white ‘Otty’ handmade glass sculpture is perfect for lovers of monochrome. From black to white and back again, you will lose hours staring into this perfectly formed glass art piece. Casting a different shadow whichever way you view the Otty, this glass sculpture is available with dots or rings. Each Otty is hand-crafted and entirely unique, Katherine finding her inspiration for the design from geometric patterns and textile prints.
The Black and White monochrome Otty measures 17.5cm and is the largest from Katherine’s collection of the same name. A stunning centrepiece for serious glass-art collection, Katherine works on her Otty collection when she is not busy working on commissions and for other designers. Choose the Otty in black and white for modern décor homes, and for lovers of monochrome and the simplicity and purity of black and white.
Handmade Glass Sculpture Artist
Katherine takes her inspiration for her handmade glass sculpture designs 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.
