Close-packed frits of radiant blue colour the hexagonal shaped body adding a fabulous orange-peel texture and condensing at the shoulder to create a more gritty texture. The gently tapered neck and flared has been coloured with streaks of purple which beautifully compliments the radiant blue body. The body colour was applied as frits of glass to the initial gather and worked into the surface of the glass as the piece was hand blown into shape.

This technique which was mastered by Vallien, ensures each piece in the series is totally unique.
