Metameric Vessel I
Metameric Vessel I by Irish glass blower Edmond Byrne, is exclusive to The New Craftsmen. The series examines the metameric phenomenon; when two individual colours appear indistinguishable to the human eye, their difference is revealed with a change in ambient light. Glass reflects light but also allows light to pass through and project. The nature of this dynamic affects light of different wavelengths reaching the eye, lending itself to this phenomenon. Edmond 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 manifestation of emotion.
