Benjamin Cobb

Banded Mussel

Blown glass, 22.5"h x 16"w x 7"d, Item No. 16284,


The subtle combination of muted red, green, and yellow create a soothing visual in Benjamin Cobb's blown glass interpretation of a Northwest Coast mussel shell.  The oblong and somewhat asymmetrical windows Cobb has incorporated into the center of the sculpture give the sense of the mussel flesh and grant the viewer a glimpse of the sculpture's interior, lending insight into the artist's process.  Eye catching and well-executed, this piece of Studio Glass would make a welcome edition to any collection.
