Helix Banded Pail
The Helix Banded Pail is one of the more complex pieces at Little River Hotglass. It is made in the Venetian incalmo style with two independent bubbles attached together while hot. The top bubble is made from a complementary colored glass to the bottom which has ribbons of vortex color spiralling up the form. Optic ribbing is available in this helix bubble which creates lines within the color and distorts the optics (seen in the Florida and Jewel pieces). The plain vortex creates a smoother pattern with less distortion (seen in the Spring piece). A little larger and taller than most of our bowls, the Pail makes a great focal point in a room and is fully functional to hold flowers or fruit. Should you have any specific color requests, please get in touch. Signed and dated by the artist, Michael Trimpol – Little River Hotglass Studio.
