Artistic Vase ‘Black Rainbow Spiral Pod’ by Nicola Steel
The intense black background on this artistic vase really enhances the vibrancy of the rainbow colours. Admire the ‘painterly’ splashes of green and blue at the bottom of the pod and the dramatic swirls of purple, red and orange colour that circle up the vase.
This artistic vase is available in a choice of two sizes – large or small. It will look amazing alone, or increase the impact by placing it with the black rainbow spiral cylinder.
Fabulous as a decorative ornament on its own or use to hold a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Whatever takes your fancy!
Please note these are examples from the series and each vase will vary slightly from the image shown. Each one is made to order, signed by the artist and unique.
Artistic Vase Artist
Nicola Steel has enjoyed working with hot glass for almost twelve years. Her fascination began at Manchester Metropolitan University, where she studied for a BA Hons in 3D design. Nicola continued on to the International Glass Center in Brierly Hill and then worked for Aaronson Noon Glass in London.
Opportunities to work in a variety of different glass studios as well as regularly working with other artists have proved invaluable. These fruitful experiences have greatly expanded her knowledge and technical abilities with glass. Nicola’s in-depth understanding of the material is evident by the expanding complexities and beauty of her pieces. However, not one to rest on her laurels, Nicola is aware of the need to keep expanding her horizons. She continues to learn and develop her skills all the time.
Nicola’s inspiration is quite simply the glass itself. She enjoys playing with the beautiful optical qualities, to create a sense of movement and sensuality. Colour theory is also a key feature. Working with primary and secondary colours, in contrast with black, she creates a playful yet elegant colour palette. Nicola’s arresting artworks draw the viewer in to see what is happening inside.
