Striking gray shadows float around the organic shape of this glass vessel by Susan Rankin. Her unique shadow series of vessels use white glass as a base accentuated by threads of grey. Light reflects off the shiny polished surface of this contemporary smaller piece.
“The story is abstract but engaging and flows around the form. There is a weightlessness-- a suspended motion caught within the depth of the surface.” Susan Rankin
