A Bit About the Artists:
Paul Willsea and Carol O’Brien have worked together since 1983 and their glass works have been shown and represented at galleries and juried exhibitions throughout the USA including the California Crafts Museum in San Francisco, The Store at the American Crafts Museum in New York City, and the store at the Corning Museum of glass. They live in the Finger Lakes Region of Western New York. As life partners they have three children and enjoy a rural lifestyle while they work from their home studio on their wooded property.
One of their bodies of work consists of bowls and vases, which combine a blown vessel with a cast base. The base is cast to give the pieces a stable foundation while drawing references to architecture. The blown bowl seamlessly emerges from the cast base and is a fluid and graceful counterpoint.
Condition: In perfect condition!
