Glass Urn ‘Optic Rib Round’ by Michael Trimpol

Colourful, vibrant and made with loving care, the ‘Optic Rib’ glass urn is a joyous shrine. A glass urn by Michael Trimpol will help you to commemorate and celebrate the life of a dearly departed.

Each glass urn is hand-blown and features a dazzling colour and a delightful ribbed exterior.  The glass is frosted to obscure the contents inside.  An outline of contents will still be visible.

N.B. The image shown is an example of the piece. Each coloured glass urn is hand-blown and therefore there will be small variations in colour and pattern. Each one is completely unique and signed by the artist.
Large Vol: 183 cu in- (3L)
Small Vol: 73 cu in- (1.2L)

Glass Urn Artist

Michael Trimpol artist is our first American. We are delighted to be able to bring his art glass vases here to the UK.

Michael was born and raised in Philadelphia. He first learnt about glassworking when he took a stained glass course in Vermont.

He started pursuing a career in stained glass and studied at Concordia University in Montreal before becoming frustrated with the two-dimensional nature of stained glass and moved into glassblowing, taking a course at Sheridan College School of Craft & Design in Mississauga, Ontario, where he graduated in 1985.

After graduation he took up residency at one of Toronto’s most popular tourist destinations; Harbourfront Craft Studios, before setting up his own company in 1989 Hot Glass Inc. He relocated to Stowe Vermont to continue to develop his range of blown glass products. From there he designs and produces a diverse array of art glass products.

He currently designs and manufactures a diverse body of products in addition to overseeing the operations of the studio.

Artist’s Statement

“Of the many media and processes which can be used to create art, I have always been attracted to glass and its potential. I initially worked with stained glass.

However, I soon became drawn to the dynamic nature of the blowing process which seemed to suit both my nature and my vision better.

I have a strong preference for objects of a personal scale and with potential utility. A vessel with a lid or stopper has always been of most interest. Colour and pattern are also very important. I like to create either a single pure colour highlighting form or a more complex mixture to create patterns.

I am proud of the final product, but it is the actual process of creation that I find most satisfying.”

    I bought Peacock Cerulean clear urn which is really beautiful.
    It arrived promptly and the service from Boha was excellent.
