Pink Glass Art ‘Precious Vessel’ by Cathryn Shilling
Cathryn Shilling brings us this beautiful pink glass art from her ‘Precious Vessel’ collection, the latest series of artwork from her studio. Best known for her kiln-formed work, Cathryn has also studied glassblowing and draws much inspiration from the molten state of hot glass.
The precious vessels collection is made up of unique and incredibly tactile vessels. This pink glass art vessel encapsulates silver leaf. As the glass is blown the precious leaf fractures and moves apart giving a distinctive pattern to each piece.
