Hand crafted by Anna Silverton, this dramatic form has a wonderfully streamline silhouette and rich tone, skilfully accentuating the shape with precise carves lines that delineate the segments. An enticing deep blue finish with hints of purple around its edge give this bold form a delicate touch. The weight adds depth to the rounded body, adding contrast to the slim rim.
This is a striking sculptural piece that would hold a presence in any space.
