Aside of the Face

Handblown Bohemian glass vases from white opal and black ruby with gold painted glass surface.

The vase’s morphology resulted from stylization of the human head. I included a game with a viewer by shifting a painted motive on the side parts, which are commonly considered to be less important. The shapes were blown into wooden moulds and then hand painted with gold and glass colours. The surfaces decorated in this way make the animated bordering all around the shape. It is possible to rotate the vase to place it on every single surface.
