about

‘Tapestry No 10' is a unique glass vase by the American artist, Scott Benefield.

Benefield takes the exquisite techniques of mid century Italian glass as a starting point to his work. His Tapestry Vessels move beyond historical replica by intentionally disrupting the rhythm and order of pattern to create a unique, tension filled piece that questions our ideas about perfection and control. Tapestries were used to tell stories and document moments in history, Benefield's glass versions also capture the imagination but unlike flat, woven tapestries, these patterns encircle the vase with no apparent beginning or end.

Benefield's pieces are represented in private collections globally and are held in the permanent collections of the Museum of American Glass, Millville, USA, North Lands Creative Glass, Lybster, Scotland and the Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA.

​​​​​​​The artist can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
