Katherine Gray: Black Iridescent Eye Vase


This small vase is by Katherine Gray.

The iridescence in Katherine Gray’s work is created when microscopically thin layers of vaporized metallic oxides, layered with a coatings of vaporized quartz, are applied to the surface of the glass, a technology developed by NASA for glass panels used on rockets and space shuttles. Due to the different way these deposits are distributed on a sandblasted surface, the glass looks to be different colors from different angles.

  • Because they are handmade, each piece varies in color and shape
