Small Glass Vessel ‘Isla Contoy’ by Gregg Anston-Race
The small glass vessel of the two ‘Isla Contoy’ by Gregg, this one is as intricate and beautiful as it’s counterpart, with flecks of green and yellow immersed in volcanic grey. Evoking its island namesake in Mexico, with its pure white sandy beaches and cocnut palms.
The small glass vessel with its intricately woven pattern comes with its own stand to ensure stability and so you can show it off in its very best light. A great addition to the modern home or apartment.
Small Glass 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 work has been on display from Penzance to Inverness. He has also commissioned many large and small glass vessels and other items 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.
