Decorative Vase ‘Monochrome ‘ By Thomas Petit
This beautiful decorative vase is part of a skillfully hand blown collection “monochrome”, created by Thomas Petit, inspired by his previous success, the wonderfully colourful and original collection “Sea Shore”. This uniquely sophisticated decorative vase displays alluring waves of white marbled through darkest black to create a neat and calming centrepiece that will bring the whole room together. The contrast of white rippled through the black provides the piece with a wonderful contrast and warm feel and with its unusual shape and smooth silhouette, which fits perfectly into the modern home.
Decorative Vase Artist
Thomas Petit started out in the world of clay, before entering the field of glass art. At first unwilling to expand his knowledge, he then remembers a visit to a Dartington Crystal Factory to watch glassblowing as a child. This memory jolted his desire to broaden his horizons, and Thomas embarked on a glass blowing course in Cornwall. Financial difficulty meant he was able to accept a three year apprenticeship, and Petit eventually took up a voluntary position at The Glasshouse in Covent Garden. After various jobs and time spent in New Zealand. Thomas settled in Derbyshire, on the edge of the Peak District.
Feeling the stress of working a full-time job in 2015, and juggling it with his glassmaking meant Thomas was to make an important decision. By 2016, Thomas was concentrating solely on his glassblowing. Inspiration for his works comes from both everyday objects and experiences as well as from art and his own photography. Many of his best works have actually been happy accidents, he confesses. One of his latest ranges that continues to evolve his the ‘Sea Shore,’ inspiration coming from his childhood trips to East Sussex. All his pieces in this range are ground by hand, and sheen is restored by buffing when necessary after sandblasting.
