Banded Purple Pod
25"h x 13"w x 7"d, Item No. 15942,
Benjamin Cobb uses his glass blowing prowess to present us with the gentle contour of the Banded Purple Pod. The form itself is understated and elegant. The horizontal tendency of the cane patterning creates a welcome tension in the vertically oriented body of the sculpture. Purple and green are both hues experienced in nature, further grounding this otherwise precious object in the natural world. This shining example of contemporary glass art displays beautifully alone or can be paired with other examples of Benjamin's sculpture to create further visual interest.
