Dorchester Cameo Vase, a glass artwork in alabaster & gold by Sarah Wiberley

$1,654.69

About

Dorchester Cameo Vase, is a unique amber with white overlay vase by the British artist Sarah Wiberly. This collection is inspired by the traditions of English 19th century cameo glass. The imagery follows the familiar motifs of floral and bamboo leaf motifs, a caged bird and 1920's glamorous figures. The‘Dorchester Cameo Series’ has taken direct aesthetic references from the Dorchester hotel, for the motifs employed. By bringing contemporary style to the traditions of glassblowing used in the making of her hand made vessels, Wiberley introduces a fresh approach to the concept of embellishment, decoration and ornament. In the artist’s own words: ‘Decoration and ornament have long been disregarded and seen as superfluous to function. Downgraded from a definition of luxury, ornament is often treated with suspicion, its intention to deceive. Adverse to this view, ornament is also a strong and effective conveyor of history, tradition, and culture’ Since graduating from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Ceramics and Glass in 2011, Wiberley has worked for many prestigious glassmakers and has exhibited her work in Europe as well as in the UK.
