Volcanic Glass Art Vessel by Kalki Mansel
Choose the volcanic glass art vessel in deep red and orange with a crackled black outer pattern when you want to bring warmth to your home through glass art. Kalki takes his inspiration from science, nature, colours, and natural phenomenon, this volcanic pot fitting all four of the above. Connecting with nature, the volcanic pot holds inner turmoil, the lava that is represented in red and orange showing a release of pressure, a gushing out of thoughts and emotion.
The volcanic glass pot art vessel can be purchased alone or in combination with the volcanic vase from the same range. Not for the feint hearted, the volcanic pot can become symbolic of your own life and inner turmoil, fights, and personal struggles. Display this pot in a cabinet, on a mantle, or above an open fire place where the colours will mix beautifully with the glow of the fire, its reds, oranges, and blacks.

Volcanic Glass Artist
Kalki’s relationship with glass started at the tender age of 13 when he came across a glass art studio in Northern Ireland. Moving from the South with his family, he would spend as much time as possible hanging out at the Glass Studio he had stumbled across. Kalki finished his secondary school education, spending as much as possible of his spare time at the studio. America was his destination on completing school, and here he would learn more about his passion by visiting several studios and getting to know their individual artists.
On return from America, Kalki enrolled at Sunderland University to study for a BA honours degree in Glass, Architectural Glass, and Ceramics. His passion for glass had become intensified during his time in America, and in 2007 he graduated from Sunderland. 2008 took Kalki to Australia, and on his return, he was to start working for the Jane Charles Studio of Glass in Sunderland as well as the National Glass Centre.
Today, Kalki continues to work in Sunderland, for both studios, and as a glass blower and practising glass artist. Kalki’s works are inspired by many fields including science, the natural world, colour, and culture. Molten glass is the perfect material for expressing and capturing his inspirations, Kalki loving to share his fascination with glass with others through his works, like this highly desirable volcanic glass pot vessel.
