Purple Glass Art ‘Precious Vessel’ by Cathryn Shilling
Part of Cathryn Shilling’s ‘Precious Vessel’ collection, this purple glass art vase is a joy to behold. Cathryn encapsulates silver leaf in these pieces. As the glass is blown the precious leaf fractures and moves apart, therefore, a distinctive pattern is given to each piece.
Not only is this glass art vase a delight to look at, but it is also incredibly tactile. Position this extra-large vase as a centrepiece on a dining table, mantelpiece or anywhere it can be enjoyed every day. No doubt it will bring much joy for years to come!

Cathryn Shilling is internationally renowned for her glass art. She currently lives and works in London, having returned from the USA in 2004. Upon her graduation from the Central School of Art and Design in London, Cathryn worked as a designer until her family relocated to America in 2001. Whilst in the US, she studied Stained Glass in Connecticut. This prompted her to study kiln-formed glass when she returned to her roots, working alongside other glass artists. In 2010 Cathryn began to work in The Gallery, London, as Exhibition Coordinator and Curator, alongside world-renowned Peter Layton.
Cathryn’s Kiln art glass has been exhibited internationally. Her work has been seen in all corners of the globe, from the Netherlands to Mexico, to Japan and Denmark. Her most recent exhibition in 2017 where she collaborated with Anthony Scala at the British Glass Biennale led her to win the Craft and Design Award. Cathryn’s work has also led to her winning the number 25 spot of Most Amazing Glass Artists Alive Today. In 2013 she won the Warm Glass Artists Prize and has also been twice nominated for the SUWA Garasuno-Sato Glass Prize. From her London Studio, Cathryn is incredibly proud to present ‘Precious Vessels’
