Grey Glass Cylinder (Small) by Irish glass blower Edmond Byrne is a vessel suitable for displaying flowers or as a stand alone decorative piece.

This piece is inspired by the complex way in which the human mind interprets emotions, and the combination of culture and memory from different areas of the mind. Each piece in the range was made to induce an emotional response from the viewer – by the exploration of colour, texture and form – making the vessel a manifestations of emotion.

Inspired by his sketches, Edmond blows glass into moulds to create the tactile surfaces. Each mould is made of clay, fabrics and sand. The vessel is blown in opaque colours, very thinly so the hue changes. The piece is then dipped in a kaolin and water solution to create crazing and a patina effect.
