Ominous Fruit

Blown and wheel cut glass
53 H x 15 W x 13 D cm

This piece is a continuation of work that is inspired by an ongoing observation of life on the reef. The choice of colour and pattern structure is a fictitious representation of enticing yet venomous combinations of the skins and surfaces of aquatic organisms that inhabit this environment.
