This sculpture is a hot assembled cane-colored vessel. The hollow body is created first while each body part is attached separately while maintaining a temperature of above 1000 degrees.
Artist: Gin Crescentii
Gin creates colorful blown vessels including wine glasses and whimsical interpretations of monsters and aliens. At age 6, Gin knew she wanted to be a glass artist. Growing up in Italy, Gin was exposed to beautiful glass art when she visited the island of Murano, near Venice. While in Murano, an Italian glassmaker gave her a piece of zanfirico, a patterned glass cane that would later be an important source of inspiration in her own work.
