Exotic Glass Sculpture by Swiss Glass Artist Thomas Blank, 2001

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A very expressive and strange sculpture that one cannot avoid recognizing the obvious anatomical suggestions. The form is obviously organic in nature, with a frosted finish which contributes to making it feel smooth and soft. There is a polished section with a shiny area which I have tried to illustrate in photo 6.

Signed on the bottom. Tom Blank 2001.
