This richly patterned bowl by contemporary artist Peter Vizzusi is created using ancient glass blowing techniques. It is fashioned entirely by hand at the fire, decorated with a lively optical pattern and finished with the rich blue iridescence prized in ancient glass. Drawing on the artistic heritage of centuries of Italian craftsmen, the artist infuses classic style and design into a modern work of art glass. Vizzusi's vessels are created with an intuitive sense of color and form. The iridescent luster is obtained by adding silver and other metal oxides at high temperatures during the glass blowing process. This piece is a contemporary reflection of the types of historic glass found in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum.
