Amber Glass Art ‘Precious Vessel Amber with Silver’ by Cathryn Shilling
Cathryn Shillings’s amber glass art is a vessel of exceptional poise and elegance. The beautiful warm colour of this piece is like a drop of the amber nectar. Silver leaf is encapsulated in the glass which spreads through the piece during the blowing process to create a delicate and intricate pattern seen in the finished item. The curvaceous shape and texture of the piece make it a delight to touch as well as to behold.
