The Koori series of vases highlights strong contrasts between glasses of opposite attributes. Brilliantly transparent colours, like Acquamarine, Violet and Bambu, set the background for applying grey colours onto an opaque glass. This intertwining of colours proves to have a strong graphical compound that plays with transparency and opacity, emphasising visible perspectives through splits in opposite sections. Sandblasting opaque colours make them almost turn into a raw material and antique looking one too, standing in contrast to the light brilliant colourful glass. This composition brings up an element of earnestness as well as an expression of timelessness, iconic like a tribal mask.
The series’ name “Koori” derives from the Australian Aborigines’ language. Produced by VENINI.
