These limited edition glass vessels by Adam Aaronson were hand-blown at his studio in Surrey exclusively for Dulwich Picture Gallery. Inspired by the light-filled watercolour paintings of John Singer Sargent, their sun-dappled, painterly effect is achieved through different coloured molten glass shards. Each vessel has an inscription at the base.
Adam says of his work: ‘I am inspired by the ceaseless mutability of light on the landscape, the sky and on water. I am fascinated by horizons, the vanishing point where the land merges with the sky. Glass is the ideal medium to express this idea of continual change since its properties are inherently mutable, not only in its molten state but also in the way the play of light creates endless nuances in the finished piece.'
