Soft white shadows appear to float through the glass of these stunning contemporary vessels by Susan Rankin. Her unique shadow series of vessels use white glass as a base with threads of opaque white and a touch of deep blue. This piece is tall and columnar. Its shiny reflective surface plays with light.
