Cameo Vase No 42




H 20.5 cm W 10.5 cm D 10.5 cm


Handblown glass




‘Cameo Vase No 42' is a unique glass vase by the British artist, Sarah Wiberley.

The ‘Cameo Series’ was inspired by investigating the ornament & traditions of English 19th century cameo glass. By bringing contemporary style to the traditions of glassblowing used in the making of her hand made vessels, Wiberley introduces a fresh approach to the concept of embellishment, decoration and ornament.

In the artist’s own words:

'Decoration and ornament have long been disregarded and seen as superfluous to function. Downgraded from a definition of luxury, ornament is often treated with suspicion, it’s intention to deceive. Adverse to this view, ornament is also a strong and effective conveyor of history, tradition, and culture’

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