Small clear glass vase with dancing flecks and smears of bright color. A beauty.
'A brightly coloured, non-iridized version of the Nassau vase. We call them "naked" when they don't have the veil of rainbow sheen. The decoration ends up being brighter and zestier with it's true colours laid bare.'
Peter Gudrunas works in an ancient art, forming contemporary glass vessels. At his studio near the shores of Lake Erie, he begins with raw materials such as powdered quartz and limestone, measures, mixes and refines them in a furnace at temperatures in excess of 2400 degrees. One of the few glassblowers in North America to still make the majority of his glass from scratch (and working from an old handwritten recipe book) much of Peter's glass colours are unique to his practice, each piece is subtly different from the next.
