Ed. of 19
The theme of the Cosmos vase series embodies the “Order of Space” by employing a simple geometry of a sphere subtracted from the center of a cube. Perpendicular divisions of the combined volume result in four separate parts. Aspherical shape emerges through the ‘nothingness’—the Buddhist concept that abounds in the contemporary architect’s structural designs—and the Cosmos appears suspended in time and space.
Through the skilled craftsmanship of Venetian glassmakers, the three elements present a jewel-like sculpture. The viewer must imagine the intentionally missing piece of the composition to complete the order of the “COSMOS”.
