Shell II, a Unique white & slate grey Art Glass Vase by Laura Birdsall

$2,292.39

About

Shell II is a unique white and slate grey handblown and cut glass vase by the British artist Laura Birdsall. A beautifully crafted artwork, after blowing the piece and layering the two colours, it has been cut to create fine ridges, also revealing the deep slate grey colour beneath. Laura Birdsall is deeply fascinated by the small details within nature: a tiny seed pod, a beach pebble or the edge of a fish’s fin. These micro worlds are often the catalyst for her striking and beautifully tactile vessels. Her pieces take much time and patience, the layers of transparent and opaque colors are all subject to meticulous hand cutting and polishing so as to create vibrant and translucent objects that play with natural light. Birdsall is one of a very small number of artists to have been selected for all three of the British Glass Biennale Exhibitions at Sturbridge as part of the International Festival of Glass, she was awarded the Charlotte Fraser Prize whilst studying her MA at the Royal College of Art and in 2006 won the Best Newcomer award for the prestigious Bombay Sapphire Prize which toured to New Zealand, France and Italy. Her work has been shown in Switzerland, Estonia, Holland, the USA and extensively here in the UK.
