Summa creates these swirling lines of color, intricate "dragon" coils, complex helix formations and other interior patterns from molten glass that he makes himself. Working from the inside out, he creates the inner-most formations first, then adds concentric layers of crystal, iridescent and colored glass. He often cuts and polishes facets through which the interior forms are revealed and reflected.Artist Bio: Henry Summa has been working in glass since 1972 until he passed in September 2008. Summa built his first studio in New York near Woodstock. He moved his studio to his present location behind his home in New Mexico. Over the last few years he has found his work growing away from functional forms into more sculptural and complex designs. Summa does extensive cutting, polishing and assembly after the cooling process. Many of his pieces include glass cane and murrini that he has personally made to add more interest and individuality to his designs. Vase has no chips, scratches or marks, please see pictures for more details. Measures 5.25"x 5"x 5.25. Weighs 2lbs, 2.1 oz.
