Intrinsic internal carved cameo ‘Leaping Fish’ teal & midnight blue layers. 16.5cmx12.5cm
Double inside cased internally carved intrinsic cameo. Jonathan has developed innovative carving techniques selectively carving through layers of pure colour on the inside of the form. A thick sumptuous casing of crystal glass forms an optical lens focusing on and magnifying the detailed carving in high relief. Vibrant shifts of colour are encapsulated amidst the three dimensional imagery as sparkling light is captured within the form. Logic suggests that conventional glass cameos are subdued and opalescent with a matt surface. In contract, intrinsic cameo exploits unique glass qualities of transparency and translucency to create carved cameos which are colourful, glossy and extremely ‘glassy’.
Intrinsic Cameo - Fabulous luscious colour themes, internal hand carved one-off pieces; Jonathan Harris delivers Innovative ground breaking 21st Century cameo glass. Themes of Fish, Dragonflies & hummingbirds evoke the spirit of Gallѐ the French master glassmaker.
