Wes Hunting, "Colorfield Vessel with Bleu Celeste Interior"

Description

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 original hand-blown glass vessel radiates an aurora borealis pattern of arctic blue, and pumpkin orange. This stunning arrangement of colorful ribbons sets a dramatic backdrop for the millefiori, which explode into delicate “flowers” of deep ocean blue.
