The use of colour is done in a painterly fashion, building up layers of glass pigment. The glass colours in this work undergo a chemical reaction when mixed together, creating rich gradients of colour. The blown ball of colour is suspended in a thick layer of clear glass and gives the impression of an eye. The clear surrounding also magnifies and distorts the internal colour, inviting greater investigation into what is truly being seen.
