Cylinder Vessel in Caramel Brown (Tall)

Edmond Byrne
A large, handblown collector's piece by glass maker Edmond Byrne.

This tall, black vessel is a piece to behold. The sheer scale of this cylinder speaks to the immense technical difficulty inherent in its production, and to Edmond's skills as a glassblower. A striking decorative piece, the cylinder is formed by blowing into a handmade mould to create a tactile surface. With a brick coloured glass hue, this tall glass cylinder is finished on the exterior with a delicate china clay (Kaolin) patina. This process results in a crackled, water-like patina reminiscent of ancient glass artefacts.
Material: Opaque glass
Care Instructions: Wipe with damp cloth.

Each mould is made from a range of materials, from fabric to slip-clay, and sodium silicate. The glass is handblown into the mould, which is then burned away to reveal the form of the vessel. Edmond finishes his pieces with a china clay patina to induce further texture.
