Handmade Glass Sculpture ‘Echinus’ by Katherine Huskie
The ‘Echinus’ handmade glass sculpture is perfect for lovers of bold colour. Available in wine red, aqua and cobalt, you will lose hours staring into this perfectly formed and tactile glass art piece. Each Echinus is hand-crafted and unique, Katherine finding her inspiration for the design from textile prints.
This range is designed with her love of making glass and the textures you can create with hand tools. Each ridge is created by squeezing the glass while it is molten, meaning that each piece is truly unique. The ridges make the glass tactile and ‘begs’ the viewer to stroke the glass.
NB: The image shown is an example of the series. Katherine makes each individual piece, therefore every one is unique and will vary slightly from the one shown.
