Sommercalmo 83, a Unique glass Vase in clear, black & orange by Vic Bamforth

$1,582.29

About

Sommercalmo 83 is a unique handblown sculptural vase by the British artist Vic Bamforth. Striking black and orange meet and are encased in clear glass to create this stunning piece. With soft, twisting lines, the form has dynamic movement, which causes the colours to merge and move when viewed from differing angles. Vic Bamforth draws on “life experience” for inspiration: how he feels, what he is thinking, people he has met, places he has visited and the world around him. His work, in essence, is driven by the dynamics of color, movement and the unique properties and qualities of glass itself. The blown form provides him with the ideal three-dimensional canvas with which he is able to express his own personal experience of - and to also reflect upon - life. Bamforth is a labour intensive graal technique specialist, he combines hand-painting and glass blowing skills to create instantly recognizable, vibrantly painted and humorous unique sculptural works of art in glass. With his Sommercalmo collection, Bamforth is driven by the dynamics of color, movement, and the unique properties and qualities of glass itself. ‘Sommercalmo’ collection concentrates on the techniques of ‘sommerso’ and ‘incalmo’.
