Tricolarial 18 is a unique handblown sculptural glass vessel. Whilst experimenting with colour for his Sommercalmo collection, Bamforth was inspired to create his latest works “Tricolarial”. As ever there is a hint in the name, for these are created employing 3 colours which result in a much larger array of hues within in each piece.
In essence what drives Bamforth’s work are the dynamics of colour, movement, and the unique properties and qualities of glass itself. Inspiration is drawn from life’s experiences. How he feels, what he is thinking, people he has met, places he has visited and the world around him. The blown form has provided him with the ideal three-dimensional canvas with which he is able to express his own personal experience of - and to also reflect upon - life.
