Large Vessel ‘Isla Contoy’
This Large Vessel is made in white glass with glorious green flecks, this larger ‘Isla Contoy’ represents the white sandy beach and specks of green palm trees on the beautiful Mexican island it is named after.
Gregg says: “This large vessel is named and inspired by my visit to Contoy Island situated in the Caribbean. It is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt places I have ever been. White sands and lush green vegetation”
All vessels come with a small display stand that will secure your art glass in place. A really wonderful visual treat that will be a real talking point for guests.
Large Vessel Artist
Gregg Anston-Race was born in Truro and has lived all his life in Cornwall. He grew up exploring the old mines, the coast and the moors. He finds inspiration for his art from the rugged coastline of the area and its history of mining. Gregg established Craft Fusion Studio in 2005. His large vessels and other work has been on display from Penzance to Inverness. He has also commissioned many works for businesses and private clients.
Gregg’s work started out with coloured glass, elements of mineral foils being added to his work later on. His inspiration for adding mineral foils came once again from the old mines of Cornwall and the metal ore deposits he found there. Once he had exhausted this medium, Gregg developed more new techniques. He now works mostly with coloured glass powder to produce vibrant and organic art work.
Gregg’s work has grown in variety through his experimentation. He creates unusual and unique textures in his glass art. His works include coaster, bowls, free standing sculptures, and splash backs and interiors. At his Craft Fusion Studio, Gregg makes individual and bespoke pieces of art. He has commissioned many splash backs and unique statements for private and commercial premises.
