Wes Hunting, "Colorfield Amphora in Egyptian Blue"


Wes Hunting’s Colorfield series began in 1984 and has evolved into the present work today. The title “colorfield” refers to the intense color and patterns which Wes “draws” onto the glass surface at temperatures exceeding 1,600 degrees. Much of Wes’s artistic style is his masterful rendering of the Italian glasswork technique called “millefiori”, which translates to a thousand flowers. This technique is synonymous with the glass masters of Venice and Murano, where Wes has drawn inspiration. This handcrafted colorfield amphora is a towering glass sculpture with a height of 26 inches. Showcasing a stunning backdrop of deep cobalt blue, this glass piece radiates an air of Egyptian royalty. Floating along the surfaces of this mesmerizing glass artwork are millefiori “flowers” of various orange hues. The contrast between the cobalt blue and orange hues truly make this masterpiece pop.
